The problem we have is that when we are suddenly playing with a piano (tempered tuning) we have to adjust differently so we are in tune with the piano (or any other fixed tuned instrument). So if I'm doing a recital with piano I need a couple of rehearsals or run throughs with the pianist to re-adjust my tuning. Life is never simple!
