Interesting Article About Pianos...Now This Is What Slate Is For

The Wolf at Our Heals: The centuries-old struggle to stay in tune.

The article is an interesting explanation of an arcane subject understandable by a layman. The whole thing could be completely wrong and I wouldn't know. But it was a very enjoyable use of my 10 minutes.

Ultimately this just reinforces my notion that massive amounts of technical musical knowledge may bear little relation to actual musical talent. Most of my favorite musicians, as far as I could tell, possessed almost no understanding of "temperament" or "the wolf". Or perhaps they did, but I guess they never talked about it in interviews.
