Indeed the 3 mic LCR approach is recommended and explained in section 5.7.1 of the recent Dunkerley et al Decca book, as a method employed when the mics necessarily have to be located very close to the piano, for any reason.

They are shown as gathered around the curve of the piano, their span (left to right) occupying about 1/3 of the instrument's length in a shallow arc following the piano's curve.

The centre mic is suggested as being able to alter the middle voicing of the piano of up to +/- 4dB with respect to the l/r mics
