With Piano’s delicate sound and resonance, it has a long history of bringing music to life. So let’s play the tunes, to celebrate the World Piano Day and know it’s history.

History Of Piano Day

The history of piano takes us to medieval times. At that time, there was a fretted string instrument with three or four strings attached to it. In the 15th century, this later developed into the clavichord, the spinet, virginal, clavecin, gravicembalo, and the harpsichord.

The harpsichord is considered to be the closest one to the piano. This is because the strings are now activated by the keyboards. And that is how over the next 300 years this instrument got developed. This is now known as the modern piano.

Piano Day was an idea by the German pianist/composer/producer named Nils Frahm. Through his unconventional approach and electronic music, Nils Frahm composes classical piano music. To celebrate this day, the holiday was launched in 2015.

When he was asked about the relevance of the World Piano Day, he replied, “Mostly because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers, and the listener”.

And since then, the day is celebrated with concerts, recitals, demonstrations, and lectures.
