Piano-The King of Instruments
As early as 14th century in Europe the keyboard family progressed with a new instrument called a harpsichord. Its imperfection was the lack of dynamic keyboard therefore soft and loud dynamics could not be performed. The desire of many musicians to be able to express different dynamics led to the invention of the piano in Padua, Italy in 1709. The harpsichord maker Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori revealed his new instrument that was named gravicembalo col piano e forte (meaning “soft and loud keyboard instrument”). It was later shortened to fortepiano or pianoforte, and finally just piano.
Nowadays piano is used in any genre of music from many great performers, everywhere in the world.
