Furthermore, we will briefly explain some history of the piano and the different ways you can take booking a piano.
A piece of history about the piano**
The exact year in which the piano was invented is not known, but we do know that the piano was invented by the Italian musical instrument maker Bartolomeo Cristofori, somewhere around the year 1700. At the time, the new instrument was called a pianoforte, or sometimes fortepiano. Both the word piano and the word forte come from Italian music terminology, the first being soft and the last strong. In the context of the piano, these terms refer to the variation in volume that occurs as a result of the pianist pressing the keys of the piano softer or louder. The fortepiano is widely seen as the precursor of the contemporary piano and is the instrument on which, for example, Mozart has composed all his piano music.
The modern piano is a percussion, key, and string instrument that can be used to create music through the use of a combination of a keyboard and two or three pedals. The sounds are created by pressing the keys of the piano's keyboard, because each key ensures that the hammers strike the strings of the piano via a mechanism on the inside. The pianist can then further determine the sounds with the pedals.
The typical, smaller piano that you occasionally encounter in people's homes is also called buffet piano or living room piano. This type has the strings in a vertical composition and produces a less powerful sound than a grand piano. With a grand piano, the strings lie horizontally in a plane and the pianist can create a larger volume. The projection of the sound is also better in the case of a grand piano. Furthermore, the electric piano or keyboard has also gained popularity in recent decades, thanks in particular to techno and rock music.
Which way can you go with booking a piano?
As we wrote earlier, the piano is a very versatile instrument, both in terms of the types of pianos that exist and types of music that can be played with it. From classical pianos to digital pianos and from classical music to electronic music, your possibilities and combinations are plenty. In order to familiarize yourself a bit with the world of piano bookings, we have listed some of the most common types of pianos below that you can book with us.
This type of piano is generally smaller than a grand piano and also one of the types that you encounter most in people's homes. Both beginners and advanced pianists can make beautiful music with a beautiful acoustic piano, and given its smaller size, transporting it is also a lot easier. This type of piano is perfect for playing classical music, but it can also perfectly play piano versions of pop hits.
Some people claim that the digital piano, sometimes referred to as the keyboard, is not a real piano, but this type of piano does have an important role in the piano world. The difference between a digital piano and a keyboard lies mainly in the fact that a digital piano is not only identical to a classical piano in terms of sound, but also in terms of playing. In addition, you can also connect some digital pianos to smart devices, such as a telephone or tablet. That way you can easily adjust the settings or record your piano sessions right away.
Wings or grand pianos
As we wrote earlier, you will find a separate section for grand pianos on our website, among other things because there is also a lot of variation in the area of wings. The grand piano is the largest type of piano, certainly the concert grand piano, and also the type of piano that is perfect for giving concerts in larger spaces. One of the things that our specialists will look at with you when booking a piano, is whether your party and the location is suitable for a grand piano. If the space is quite small, a smaller classic piano would certainly be the better option.
