Description
Presenting the instrument that has been at the core of musical development over the centuries in all its beauty and complexity, this history of the piano explores its capabilities and the range of emotional expression it conveys in different artists’ hands. It takes us back to the instrument’s humble genesis as a simple keyboard, and shows how everyone from Ferdinando de’ Medici to Herbie Hancock affected its evolution and influence.
