About the Piano
A family of stringed instruments with a keyboard evolved in Europe in the 14th century including the harpsichord. It was, however, limited to one, unvarying volume. Its softness and loudness could not be varied while playing. The artistic desire for more controlled expression led directly to the invention of the piano, on which the artist could alter the loudness and tone with the force of one’s fingers.
The story of the piano really begins in Padua, Italy in 1709, in the shop of a harpsichord maker named Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori (1655-1731). First exhibited in Florence in 1709, Cristofori’s new instrument was named gravicembalo col piano e forte (roughly “soft and loud keyboard instrument”). Eventually, it was shortened to fortepiano or pianoforte, and finally just piano.
The piano is used in a variety of genres of music and famous pianists include Mozart, Lang Lang, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, and many more.
