Computer scientist playing bassoon, musically at home in baroque music

comment Piano getting out of tune and noisy after 6 weeks
No reason for alarm in my opinion. After a long break it might take some tunings, until the stability is as expected. The piano technician also might have chosen a little lower tuning to smooth the ramp-up-process, which explains your guitar tuner results.

comment How do archaic instruments affect contemporary music?
@BraddSzonye: It seems plausible now, but I know no clarinetist not having B♭ and A instrument, and in classical literature there are pieces, where one has to swap between the movements.

comment Why does bowed string instrument size matter?
I see both questions as different phrasings of the underlying "purpose, benefits and disadvantages of scaled-down string instruments" question, which are difficult to answer reasonably without mentioning other aspects. The kernel answer to your question is "The instruments are smaller to be more conveniently handled (e. g. by smaller persons) bought by some compromises concerning the sound" - in my opinion still somewhat unsatisfying.

Triva: this German WP article gives the full text of Glenn Goulds "So you want to write a fugue", which may give a rough idea. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/So_You_Want_to_Write_a_Fugue%3F

comment Are music covers and the sheet music of their arrangements legal on YouTube?
I guess you won't get a definiitve answer here, but the questions seem to be the same for me. Just noticing the original authors is not sufficient to acquire intellectual property, and so you are in my opinion not allowed to publish it in any form.
