New for Piano Radio - The Live Piano Concerts Channel

Today we've added yet another channel to Piano Radio's roster: the Live Piano Concerts channel.

Part of the beauty of Yamaha's Piano Radio is the way it replicates real, live piano performances on your instrument. In a sense, every channel on Piano Radio is a "live performance" channel. So what's so special about the Live Piano Concerts channel? The fact that every song you hear on the new channel is being reproduced exactly as it was originally performed by one of the world's greatest classical pianists in a concert or competition.

Every key and pedal movement in these songs was precisely captured by a Yamaha Disklavier piano during a live performance, and now those movements and sounds are recreated perfectly on your instrument through Piano Radio. Listeners can expect to hear performances of sonatas Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Beethoven and more from pianists like Frederick Chiu, Jan Lisiecki and Boris Beresovsky.

The Live Piano Concerts channel is now online and accessible for all Piano Radio compatible instruments. CLP and MODUS users will find it under channel 14 (those looking for the Halloween Hits channel can now find it under channel 15).

If you've never tried Piano Radio before, now's the perfect time - the holidays are just around the corner, and Holiday Favorites channel will be there to soundtrack the whole season. Of course, two free channels available right now - all you need to do is get your keyboard online and you can be enjoying streaming music within seconds. Subscribers get access to the Live Piano Concerts channel, seasonal and holiday channels, and over a dozen other channels of piano music.
