The Biggest Contribution To Both Classical And Modern Music.

The piano has been one of, if not the biggest contribution to both
classical and modern music. It was first created in the early 1700s
and originated from a harpsichord. The instrument has changed in
size and shape several times since then. Being one of the most
culturally filled instruments, here are some interesting piano facts you
might not know!

  • The piano was first and originally invented in Italy in the year
    1709 by a harpsichord maker by the name of Bartolomeo di
    Francesco Cristofori. One of Cristofori’s original pianos is still in
    existence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City!● The word piano is the shortened version of the word Pianoforte,
    which means soft (piano), and loud (forte).
    ● Back in the day the first pianos were too expensive for even the
    very wealthy to own. For nearly a century only aristocrats and
    royalty owned pianos.
    ● Pianos have a total of 88 white and black keys.
    ● Out of all the instruments the piano has the widest range of tones.
    There is an entire orchestral range in one instrument! When
    seated at a piano, the deepest bass range is the first key on your
    left, and the highest treble is the last key on the right.
    ● The piano can play melody and accompaniment at the same
    time.
    ● The piano is the most intricate instrument. It has over 12,000
    parts, 10,000 of which are moving!
    ● Pedals on pianos are called (from left to right) Una Corda,
    Sostenuto, and the Sustain Pedal.
