The piano, a wonderful and fascinating string instrument, is the protagonist of countless compositions that have marked the history of music. His is a really interesting story, from an instrument for the few to an ambitious product in the modern world: we have to go back to the dawn of the 18th century to see the birth of the ancestor of the pianos as we know it today. Born in Italy, remodeled several times in Germany, implemented industrially in the United States and now present in musical styles around the world, the piano is rich in history and features. Previously reserved for the elite and the upper class, this tool democratized in the second half of the 20th century.
The piano emerges from the evolution of the clavichord and harpsichord, beaten string instruments. B. Cristofori (1655-1731) develops the idea that the keys on which to press would operate hammers capable of striking the strings. Little by little, the process evolves and an Alsatian family of German origin improved the instrument by modifying its hammer: the Silbermann family.
The first major industrial manufacturer of pianos is German and is called Blüthner. Pianos become more aesthetic, more robust, more powerful. The brand helps to give the piano its status as a prestigious instrument and to become part of the history of this instrument.
It is only around 1880-1890 that the piano as we know it today will take its shape.
At the dawn of the twentieth century, the skin that wrapped the heads of the hammers was replaced by sheep's wool, which thus embellished the sound of the piano keys.
The era of digital and web 2.0 does not contrast the success and longevity of this "noble" instrument: today the electronic piano offers the same sounds as an upright or grand piano, but it is mobile, light, compact and removable.
