Description:
The definitive history and evolution of the piano, as well as an exploration of how its sound provides the basis for emotional expression and why it has entertained generations of listeners. Illuminating the music of classical composers such as Mozart, Lizst and Debussy to the innovative techniques of modern musicians from Glenn Gould to Oscar Peterson and Alfred Brendel. A Natural History of the Piano distils a lifetime's study and passion as we learn of the craftsmanship of a modern Steinway, the peculiar speciality pianos built for Victorian homes and the continuing innovation in keyboards, including electric keyboards.
