"Impromptu in Quarter Comma Meantone"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Somber

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. This gives a very rich feel to the base chords, but leaves a couple of "wolf notes" in the gaps (most notably in the Ab). 2 minutes in, it lingers on the most out-of tune part of the scales.
