Nothing sounds better than a solo grand piano in stereo. It's spacious and full, and sounds so much like the fabulous instrument that it is. Here's a tried and true method that works well in most situations. This method of recording the grand in stereo requires a pair of identical mics set in an X-Y configuration, as talked about in the movie on recording acoustic guitars. Simply place this configuration exactly where you place the single piano mic, as seen in the previous movie, which is about 6 feet away from the rounded cut out of the piano.
(music playing) Once again, if there's not enough ambiance, move the mics back and up, to keep it with the same angle.
