This book, "The Piano", presents every aspect of the worlds greatest musical instrument. This superbly-written volume consists of 192 full-color, glossy-paper pages, and contains over 200 photographs.
Some of the topics covered in this book are: 1) the piano's colorful social history, from modest 18th century Italian beginnings to society drawing rooms, from the saloons of the Wild West to Harlem, from the concert hall to Tin Pan Alley; 2) the types of music written for it, from classical forms such as the sonata and the concerto to the rhythms of ragtime and jazz; 3) the composers who have made the greatest contribution to the piano's reputation as a vehicle for profound musical expression; 4) the performers who have made the piano "sing"; and 5) developments in piano technology and those responsible for them.
All serious pianists should have this book (and the information inside) at their fingertips.
