Fun Historical Notes - Rejuve I
Modern keyboard tuning has been in "equal temperament" for nearly the past 100 years. This means that each half step in an octave is spaced equally from the rest, a compromise which makes all of the intervals slightly out of tune, but allows for exactly the same sound in every key signature. Historical, or "well temperament" means that the half steps are not equally spaced—the result being that some key signatures have a more harmonious, in-tune sound, while others sound more dissonant. The pianos were tuned in an historical "well temperament" and the artist specifically composed and performed these melodies in the key signatures that can be perceived as more harmonious in this tuning. The effect is a calming, soothing musical experience.- John Callahan, Piano Technician, Callahan Piano
