440Hz is standard for modern pianos, but my piano has a setting of 415Hz, which is a semitone lower. Until today I haven’t noticed that it’s a semitone lower because I don’t have perfect pitch:p The tuner told me that if I set it to 440Hz, the strings could break, so it may be that the piano was originally made at 415Hz and was maintained it for a long period. The standard pitch in the Baroque era is 415Hz, but my piano is maybe not so old. However, the era from Bach to Debussy, they are generally composed in classical tunes, and 415Hz seems to be suitable for playing their songs beautifully. I started reading Tchaikovsky’s songs last week, I’ll do my best to practice so that I can play it beautifully.
