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

"the fortepiano" do you mean late 18C/early 19c Double-Action

wood frame 'forte'-pianos or Viennese Action forte-pianos? How are Brautigam's recordings miked? This is important.

No instrument is hard to record if you don't get too close and maybe, even! shock-horror! use a stereo pair of mikes.

If you are used to multiple-mono miked pianos - which you almost certainly are - you might find a modern iron-frame DA piano - when recorded with a stereo pair - difficult to like, too!

How often have you been to a live concert with a VA piano-forte?

Never, I'd be betting. .......
