It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Have you heard this one?

Not that I have many piano forte recordings but one I like a lot is Andreas Steier's Schubert's Impromptus played on a 1996 Christopher Clarke Fortepiano copy of 1827 instrument by the Viennese maker Graf.

Certainly it's not a modern Steinway, but warm and atmospheric, this is a nice intimate recording. Slightly closed down and veiled but very little distortion through the frequency range and I think it has a realistic tonal colours and in-room presence to my ears. I was surprising that period instrument has this much bottom end. ( but then this is a replica so maybe they've improved some constructions here and there.)

P.S. I just googled and Graf was Beethoven's last piano.
