Roger E. Kirk The Baldwin Piano Company, Cincinnati, Ohio Resumen: Se afinaron las cuerdas correspondientes a los unísonos de un piano de cola para obtener cinco variedades de “unísonos”. Las variedades consistieron en la generación de una afinación “sin batidos”, y una subida en la frecuencia de afinación de la cuerda más aguda de las tres del grupo de unísonos conjuntamente con una bajada de la frecuencia de afinación de la cuerda del piano más grave con una diferencia de 0.5, 1, 2 y 3 céntimos de variación en relación a la cuerda central. Se hicieron grabaciones del piano afinado según dichas variaciones en una cinta magnética. Se les presentaron estas grabaciones, en forma de una prueba de comparación de preferencia de dos a dos, a sujetos, tanto con formación musical como sin ella. Las preferencias de afinación predilectas para los grupos de unísonos de tres cuerdas, tras su grabación y reproducción desde la cinta magnética, fueron de 1 y 2 céntimos de desviación máxima entre cuerdas.
Singer Janis Joplin rose to fame in the late 1960s and was known for her powerful, blues-
inspired vocals. She died of an accidental drug overdose in 1970.
Early Musical Interests Musically, Janis Joplin and her friends gravitated toward blues and jazz, admiring such artists as Lead Belly. Joplin was also inspired by legendary blues vocalists Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Odetta, an early leading figure in the folk music movement. The group frequented local working-class bars in the nearby town of Vinton, Louisiana. By her senior year of high school, Joplin had developed a reputation as a ballsy, tough-talking girl who like to drink and be outrageous. After graduating from high school, Joplin enrolled at Lamar State College of Technology in the neighboring town of Beaumont, Texas. There, she devoted more time to hanging out and drinking with friends than to her studies. At the end of her first semester at Lamar, Joplin left the school. She went on to attend Port Arthur College, where she took some secretarial courses, before moving to Los Angeles in the summer of 1961. This first effort to break away from wasn't a success, however, and Joplin thus returned to Port Arthur for a time. In the summer of 1962, Joplin fled to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art. In Austin, Joplin began performing at folksings—casual musical gatherings where anyone can perform—on campus and at Threadgill's, a gas station turned bar, with the Waller Creek Boys, a musical trio with whom she was friends. With her forceful, gutsy singing style, Joplin amazed many audience members. She was unlike any other white female vocalist at the time (folk icons like Joan Baez and Judy Collins were known for their gentle sound).
Starting in August 1817, Mohr was asked to provide temporary assistance to the Oberndorf parish priest Josef Kessler. In October, he was officially named to the open position of assistant priest (Koadjutor). Around this same time, his supervisor was replaced with the parish priest Georg Heinrich Nöstler. As the village of Oberndorf possessed no proper vicarage for its priests, Mohr would sleep in the church caretaker's house, while taking his meals generally in nearby "Gasthof" restaurants. Financial problems in the parish contributed to making the relationship between Mohr and Nöstler tense. Moreover, Nöstler was critical of his young assistant priest, accusing him of "neglecting his priestly duties, frequenting drinking locales, joking with persons of the opposite sex, and singing songs which do not edify." The deacon of nearby St. Georgen, who served as overseer of the Oberndorfer priests, along with the town leaders in Oberndorf, responded in writing saying these accusations were unfounded.

Born on October 28, 1963, in Rome, Italy, Ramazzotti began his recording career in the early '80s in association with the DDD label. While he made his commercial debut in 1982 with the one-off single "Ad un Amico," his big break came in 1984 when he won Newcomer of the Year at the Sanremo Music Festival with his song "Terra Promessa." Released as a single that same year, "Terra Promessa" became a breakout hit for Ramazzotti and led to the release of his full-length album debut, Cuori Agitati (1985), which spawned another significant early hit single, "Una Storia Importante." The first of Ramazzotti's international hits, "Una Storia Importante" was not only a chart-topping smash hit in Italy, where it was showcased by Ramazzotti at the 1985 Sanremo Music Festival; it was also a smash hit in neighboring France, where it spent three weeks at number two on the singles chart, and in Switzerland, where it reached the Top Ten. "Adesso Tu," performed at the 1986 Sanremo Music Festival, was another significant hit with international appeal.
