Hey Kid's, It's a Piano
The Piano can be a member of the orchestra or a solo instrument. It is one of the favorite solo instruments of all the instruments in the orchestra with works by Beethoven, Brahms, Gershwin, Mozart, Ravel, Tchaikovsky, and many more. Stravinsky's Petrouchka and Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring are excellent examples of compositions where the piano plays a role as an orchestra member. The piano player is referred to as a pianist.
The system described for building the rim of a grand piano was developed by Theodore Steinway in 1880.
Piano playing is sometimes referred to as "tickling the ivories". Have you tickled a piano lately?
