More Important Information About Your Travel to Piano Di Coreglia Ponte All Ania
The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700 (the exact year is uncertain), in which the strings are struck by felt hammersIt is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys (small levers) that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings. The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte, the Italian term for the early 1700s versions of the instrument, which in turn derives from gravicembalo col piano e forte and fortepianoThe Italian musical terms piano and forte indicate "soft" and "loud" respectively, in this context referring to the variations in volume (i.e., loudness) produced in response to a pianist's touch or pressure on the keys: the greater the velocity of a key press, the greater the force of the hammer hitting the strings, and the louder the sound of the note produced and the stronger the attackThe name was created as a contrast to harpsichord, a musical instrument that does not allow variation in volume; compared to the harpsichord, the first fortepianos in the 1700s had a quieter sound and smaller dynamic range.An acoustic piano usually has a protective wooden case surrounding the soundboard and metal strings, which are strung under great tension on a heavy metal framePressing one or more keys on the piano's keyboard causes a padded hammer (typically padded with firm felt) to strike the strings.
The hammer rebounds from the strings, and the strings continue to vibrate at their resonant frequencyThese vibrations are transmitted through a bridge to a soundboard that amplifies by more efficiently coupling the acoustic energy to the airWhen the key is released, a damper stops the strings' vibration, ending the soundNotes can be sustained, even when the keys are released by the fingers and thumbs, by the use of pedals at the base of the instrumentThe sustain pedal enables pianists to play musical passages that would otherwise be impossible, such as sounding a 10-note chord in the lower register and then, while this chord is being continued with the sustain pedal, shifting both hands to the treble range to play a melody and arpeggios over the top of this sustained chord.
Unlike the pipe organ and harpsichord, two major keyboard instruments widely used before the piano, the piano allows gradations of volume and tone according to how forcefully or softly a performer presses or strikes the keys. Most modern pianos have a row of 88 black and white keys, 52 white keys for the notes of the C major scale (C, D, E, F, G, A and B) and 36 shorter black keys, which are raised above the white keys, and set further back on the keyboardThis means that the piano can play 88 different pitches (or "notes"), going from the deepest bass range to the highest trebleThe black keys are for the "accidentals" (F♯/G♭, G♯/A♭, A♯/B♭, C♯/D♭, and D♯/E♭), which are needed to play in all twelve keysMore rarely, some pianos have additional keys (which require additional strings)Most notes have three strings, except for the bass, which graduates from one to two.
The strings are sounded when keys are pressed or struck, and silenced by dampers when the hands are lifted from the keyboardAlthough an acoustic piano has strings, it is usually classified as a percussion instrument rather than as a stringed instrument, because the strings are struck rather than plucked (as with a harpsichord or spinet); in the Hornbostel–Sachs system of instrument classification, pianos are considered chordophonesThere are two main types of piano: the grand piano and the upright pianoThe grand piano is used for Classical concerto solos, chamber music, and art song, and it is often used in jazz and pop concertsThe upright piano, which is more compact, is the most popular type, as it is a better size for use in private homes for domestic music-making and practice.
