On a recent visit to Yamaha HQ in Milton Keynes we had the opportunity to discuss and try Yamaha’s new stage piano the CP88. We made quite a few videos whilst there and this is a clip from one of those.
There are two models in the range. The CP88 shown here and the CP73. The main differences are that CP88 features Yamaha’s Graded Hammer, triple sensor (NW-GH) keyboard with Synthetic Ebony and Ivory Key Tops and the CP73 features a newly-designed, 73-key balanced action that gives you authentic electric piano feel and goes from “E-to-E”. Apart from that both keyboards are identical in sound and features.
Chris Miller, whom some of you will know from the forum as ‘Parametric’ is seen here playing one of his own compositions on the CP88.
Chris is an experienced and versatile musician and as well as playing piano also a regularly joins ‘The English Chamber Choir’, performing choral works ranging from early to contemporary music. He has also taken part with the choir in recording sessions for artists as diverse as Vangelis, Black Sabbath, Rick Wakeman, Gene Pitney, Jon Anderson, Demis Roussos and recently Procol Harem.
In the Summer of 2016 Chris took part, as a member of the English Chamber Choir, in the re-recording of Rick Wakeman’s “Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table” Double-CD and Vinyl. The choir subsequently performed live at the StoneFree Festival at London’s O2 Arena. Chris had taken part in the original 1975 recording at Morgan Studios in NW London.
