Playlist for 23rd Jan – Music for fortepiano

Written by on January 22, 2011

The Fortepiano

Bartolomeo Cristofori is properly credited with making the first example, which was recorded among Ferdinando’s possessions in 1700. Cristofori named it gravicembalo col piano e forte, meaning ‘harpsichord with soft and loud’ but unlike a conventional harpsichord it did not pluck the strings, but had small hammers striking them.  This is the instrument from which the modern piano eveolved and this show will include examples of fortepiano music form the late baroque and classical era played on instruments or copies of the  instruments on which these works would have originally been heard.
