320px-Cyclopropane_8230

to make the comparison meaningful the same midi file capture of my performance was used to render in each tuning using pianoteq 5. The original was performed in Margo’s variation. I thnk the subharmonic version has some interesting aural properties when the sustain pedal is engaged.
