Eben Goresko describes and demonstrates historical tunings (temperaments).

Eben Goresko presents a Temperament Recital at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2000 where he demonstrates the usefulness and artfulness of tuning modern pianos in historic intonations to augment performances of Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Schubert, Bach, Mozart and other so called “equal temperament” composers.

Eben plays in both  historical and non historical temperaments so you can hear the difference! I find it quite marked, and much prefer the historical temperaments.

Chopin’s Funeral March in historical temperament is fantastic!
