Fat, rich and buttery.

This photo by Todd Heisler is here until The New York Times makes me remove it.

Buried in the last link of a NYT Arts slideshow about the new Diller Scofidio & Renfro renovation of Alice Tully Hall is the following quote:

“Oh my God, it’s heaven,” said Anne-Marie McDermott after playing a Steinway on the stage. “You can do anything: the clarity, the range.” She called the sound fat, rich and buttery, and unfamiliar from prerenovation days. “I wouldn’t have recognized it,” she said.

It’s amazing to consider being sensitive to sound to the extent that spaces would have tangible acoustic characteristics.
