Martin Guigui

"I am a purist at heart. Kurzweil provides the most authentic piano frequencies and action in concert grand piano sounds and vintage keyboards such as Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer. Kurzweil cuts through live with a dynamic range at any size venue and also performs on recordings above and beyond the competition. The individual orchestra sounds are fat and dynamic. Kurzweil continues to be my instrument of choice and has been for almost 20 years."
