Another puzzle - 'More than 2 hands (but not 4) on any number of pianos'.
Does this mean 3, 5, 6, 7, 8,... hands on 0, 1, 2, 3, 4,... pianos? It seems
to me that there infinitely many logically impossible combinations produced,
if the number of hands is less than the number of pianos. The possibility of
fractional, negative, or, God forbid, imaginary numbers of pianos has also
not been ruled out, worryingly. :-)

The most common multiplayer combinations are 1P4H (duet) (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=83) and 2P4H (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=84). This thread captures all other combinations.

In fact, I myself prefer 1 - exp(πi) pianos...

I'm more of a 2 + exp(πi) piano man!

$2 + exp(πi + 2πk), k\in mathbb{Z}$
There's a whole new world out there when k>0 :ugeek:

It's real fun to play these pieces - one doesn't need to be inséparable, but certainly one shouldn't be intouchable...

Excellent, dear Paolor, thanks a lot!
(But don't forget that vol. 1 and vol. 2 ARE inseparable... ;) )
