Hi!


Thanks for taking this thread further.


http://www.radfordpiano.com/repertoire.html is an examination of piano tuning suitable for different eras. For the past decade I have had a soft spot for Kellner for 19th century composers.


http://tunersart.com/jorgensenontemperament.pdf is an excellent resume and certainly Owen Jorgensen was a leader in the examination of temperaments


http://www.forum-pianoteq.com/viewtopic.php?id=396 is an argument for reverting concert pitch from 440 to 432 (mathematical pitch)


http://www.dolmetsch.com/musictheory27.htm examines sources of different pitch at different times and an examination of temperaments - a mine of information and one wonders if any more can be said on the subjects than appears here?


http://www.millersrus.com/dissertation/ The effects of unequal temperaments on Chopin Mazurkas. This is contemporary with my own assertion to Rose Cholmondeley that the 2nd Sonata demonstrated intent of use of temperament.

And a couple more,  about modern organs built recently and tuned to 1/4-comma meantone...

This one also mentions the "Lehmann" temperament employed by a few Taylor and Boody instruments... but only briefly.  It  includes some information on all "known" dual-temperament pipe organs currently on Planet Earth...

Hi!


I would urge great scepticism on Lehmann's temperament, probably noted elsewhere but mentioning again here for completeness: the premise is based on an upside down interpretation of Bach's squiggle and which is based on no historical or musical precedent. In contrast, Charles Francis reworked the theory based on the squiggle as written, with a result in accordance with Kellner and the historical precedents of Werkmeister and Kirnberger.
