If you’re a devotee of classical music, at that point, you certainly think about the renowned piano. Used in shows all over the place, the piano has a long history of breathing life into the music with its fragile sound and lovely resonance. In any case, did you realize that there’s a holiday devoted to pianos? The truth is out, there’s a day about the history and love for pianos.
Piano Day History
The creation of the piano started through its ancestors, primarily through medieval times as a dulcimer, a fretted string instrument with three or four strings attached. From that point, it formed into the clavichord, the spinet, virginal, clavecin, gravicembalo, lastly, the harpsichord in the 15th century.
The harpsichord was developed by Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori and the harpsichord is viewed as to the nearest ancestor to what modern-day individuals know as the piano due to the keyboards that actuated the strings. From that point, the harpsichord grew further throughout the next 300 years into what we know as the modern piano.
Piano Day started as thought by the German pianist/producer/composer Nils Frahm. Nils Frahm forms classical piano music with electronic music, transforming piano music with an unconventional methodology. He propelled the holiday in 2015.
In 2016, there were over 20 events held over the globe, from Japan, Australia, Russia, Slovenia, Germany, The Netherlands, Israel, Lithuania, France, the UK, and Canada.
When Frahm was inquired as to why the world needs a Piano Day, Frahm answered back “…mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.”
From that point forward, the holiday extended as individuals held concerts, performances, speeches, and exhibits. An official website, Pianoday.org, lists all the concerts and events you can go to everywhere throughout the world to help celebrate the excellence of the piano.
