NMC Learning at Home: Cristofori’s Piano—Evolution of the Piano (Part 4)

In Part 4 of our exploration into the evolution of the piano, Evan the Educator highlights a replica of an instrument by Bartolomeo Cristofori, credited as the inventor of the piano. Learn what made his modifications revolutionary and how they relate to the modern piano.

Make sure to watch all previous episodes on the harpsichord, the clavichord, and the hammered dulcimer, too.
