What Does the World Oldest Surviving Piano Sound Like?: Watch Pianist Give a Performance on a 1720 Cristofori Piano | Open Culture

I cannot imagine the world without a piano.  So many hours listening to Sarah, my daughter, learn and play this amazing and expressive instrument. (Sarah has played on the Red Piano, pictured, when it was at Te Manawa, here in Palmerston North).

This is a recording of the earliest know piano.  Please listen and read the notes.

Imagine your favorite works for the piano—the delicate and haunting, the thundering and powerful. The minimalism of Erik Satie, the Romanticism of Claude Debussy or Modest Mussorgsky, the rapturous swooning of Beethoven’s concertos.
