NMC Learning at Home: The Clavichord—Evolution of the Piano (Part 2)

Evan the Educator continues delving into the evolution of the piano in Part 2 of the series. In this episode, he explores the clavichord. With a keyboard included in its design, it’s a big leap from its predecessor, the hammered dulcimer. Hear the clavichord’s distinctly soft sound; and learn a bit about the instrument that came after it, the clavinet.
