comment How to synthesize grand piano sound
I believe the Yamaha is still sample-based. (Just mentioning so that people are careful; Yamaha's certainly not going to advertise that CP1 is not a virtual piano in the sense of V-piano and Pianoteq.)

comment playing softly - full grand piano
@user2097818: It all depends but one thing you can try for slow passages is this: keep the fingers and wrist kind of firm but "spring-like" and play from the elbow or shoulder. This allows you to use a larger and faster movement (which is easier to keep even even when there is friction) while still keeping the velocity of the key low. Maybe think how a cat would play... Well, it's really difficult to explain. Your best bet, as usual, is to find a good teacher.

comment What is the correct fingering for this sequence of notes?
A good fingering depends on many things, like the properties of your hands, the tempo, articulation (legato/staccato/...) dynamics, pedal, position of strong beats etc. etc... For example, with my (right) hand, if the tempo would be about 120bpm, where each G is on a beat, and pedal is used, and I would like it to sound like some kind of flourishing, I would probably use 12345 12345 12323 5. If I want a little crescendo in the end I might use 12312 4 in the end. Here I use 1 for thumb as is standard (for both hands). It would be good if you could scan/take a picture of the score.
