No other instrument has the versatility, power and depth of the piano. It is central to almost all music genres. The piano gallery will inspire you whether you love classical, jazz, rock and pop or blues. Virtually without exception pianos are core and we’d like to give you a little historical background about some iconic pianos through the years.
Of course, the modern piano is very different from the original instruments that emerged in the 18th Century, both tonally and visually. Some pianos stand out from the crowd; they have etched themselves into our heritage and imagination.
Here is a small selection of iconic pianos that have been owned, performed and composed on by leading musicians of their time and which can still be seen in a piano gallery or museum somewhere in the world.
