Variations Playlist for 8th Jan 2012 – Fortepiano (repeat from 2011)

Written by on January 7, 2012

 The Fortepiano – Repeat of show from 2011

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.
