Classical Pacific, July 23, 2018: Keyboard Evolution
The piano plays a central role in Classical music. How did it get from its beginnings as a pipe organ or hammered dulcimer to the magnificent 88 key instrument of today? I'll talk a little about its history, and play lots of keyboard music for you today, performed by great artists.
Here are links to some wonderful resources:
Note By Note (2016) - notebynotethe movie.com - about the making of Steinway grand piano L1037.
