Synopsis: The piano is where art, craftsmanship, musicianship, design and technology meet to form one of the most beloved and popular musical instruments of our times. The exhibition Piano 300 at the Smithsonian's International Gallery in Washington D.C. in 2000 and 2001 presented the astonishing 300-year history of this great musical instrument from its beginnings in Florence to the great manufacturers of the last century. The instruments themselves, and also the composers, performers, makers, teachers, and publishers connected with them, were represented in a highly successful display that attracted over 330,000 visitors in 20 months.

Part exhibition catalogue, part technical and social history of the piano, PIANO 300: Celebrating Three Centuries of People and Pianos presents the exhibition's highlights in a lavishly illustrated book that captures the visual excitement of this authoritative survey of one of western culture's most pervasive musical icons.

Scarecrow Press is proud to be the distributor in association with the National Museum of American History, Behring Center, Smithsonian Institution and NAMM-International Music Products Association.

About the Author: Cynthia Adams Hoover is Curator of Musical Instruments at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. She has studied the changing intersections of technology, culture, and commerce of the piano's 300-year history and is co-editor with Edwin M. Good of the annotated diary of William Steinway, the piano company's financial wizard in the 19th century.

Patrick Rucker was Project Director and Co-curator of PIANO 300. As a pianist he has presented the 20th-century premieres of many works by Franz Liszt and has written widely on the composer.

Edwin M. Good is author of Giraffes, Black Dragons, and Other Pianos (Stanford University Press), a technological history of the piano. He is co-editor with Cynthia Adams Hoover of the diary of William Steinway and lives in Eugene, Oregon, where he continues his research and plays the piano in chamber music.
