Summary

A piano capable of playing a Chopin ballade by itself? This now possible! Discover the instrument used by scientists from the Science and Technology of Music and Sound laboratory (STMS), capable of reproducing a piece note for note by mimicking the pianist's intentions. Using this instrument, they are trying to unravel the mysteries of musical interpretation through the Cosmos project, funded by the ERC.
