This talks about Miller's style of playing the piano.

Miller's heavy touch builds power chording to flashing arpeggios. Soon he's laying siege to the 88 keys in quadrants, working his way up the scale emphasizing both single notes and their sympathetic vibrations.

 

 

(4) 鋼琴 heavy touch 指的是,琴鍵彈下去要使用較高的力道;簡單來說,新的鋼琴比舊的 heavy touch,因為琴後面的關節都是新的,所以要出比較大的力量彈,也因此鍵盤按下去之後,會馬上彈回來。(謝謝艾桑提供的解釋)

We were asked to help figure out why this brand new 7 foot piano had such heavy touch. One key had NO lead at all and it went out of the factory like that.
That was one heavy key.

 

By the way, someone has interpreted "heavy touch" as 1.笨手笨 clumsy 2.粗心大意 careless 3.粗魯 reckless, which I thought was incorrect.  Just to validate the definition of the usage of "heavy touch", I discussed with my colleagues yesterday and they agreed with me.
