Piano – The Gateway to Musical Greatness

During the 1600s, there were two very popular musical instruments that were taking Europe by storm. Back then, if you wanted to be a “rock star”, you either played the clavichord or the harpsichord. These two instruments had a lot in common with the pianos we know today, but they had a few problems that put a limit on just how far one could go with them. People who played the clavichord had excellent control over the tones and notes they could get out of it, but it just couldn’t play very loudly. If you wanted to play to a crowded house, you’d have a lot of trouble being heard. People who played the harpsichord found themselves facing the exact opposite problem. They could play loud, but the sound was a little sloppy and they couldn’t control the sound of the notes they played very well. An Italian musician named Bartolomeo Cristofori decided that he would build a new kind of musical instrument that would give musicians the best of both worlds – clear and controlled tone along with the ability to play loudly enough for anyone to hear. In 16983, he accomplished this goal and that is when the modern piano was born. Ever since then, the piano has become more and more popular throughout the world and is now the most widely played instrument on Earth. Continue reading “Piano – The Gateway to Musical Greatness” »
