Synopsis: This striking tribute to the piano captures its physical beauty as well as its technical and musical magic, tracing the instrument's 300-year evolution, from its forerunners--the clavichord and harpsichord--to today's electric, electronic, and digital models. Photos and graphics illustrate the piano's broad range of major landmark variations. 200 color photos.
From Library Journal:
Here from the publisher of Keyboard magazine are 200 color photos of historic and contemporary pianos, beautifully displayed with informative captions and an accompanying narrative in a sewn binding for a reasonable price. The book serves as a concise history of the piano, a pictorial record of its development (many photos and illustrations reveal design and mechanical details), and a source, through an appendix, for information on specific piano manufacturers. Eight foldout pages may become shabby after heavy use, but even libraries with Domenic Gill's Book of the Piano (Cornell Univ., 1981) and Larry Fine's The Piano Book (Brookside, 1994. 3d ed.) will want to treat themselves to this visually delightful title.?Bonnie Jo Dopp, Long Branch Community Lib., Silver Spring, Md.
