Description

Towards the end of the 18th century, European musical culture underwent a major transformation. In 1765 the harpsichord was indispensable wherever music was played, by 1795 the pianoforte had taken over and the harpsichord was all but obselete. This book examines explanations for this shift.

Technical books on the piano are usually best written by makers and restorers, and Cole comes to the subject as one of these. This is rare and to be welcomed. A valuable resource for organologists and those interested in the technical aspects of pianos. Cole's book is a useful and up-to-date partner to Harding and other books on the history of the piano. It is thanks to the prescient and skilful management of the late academic music-book division of OUP that this important book can be placed alongside its distinguished companions on our shelves.

Résumé
The Pianoforte in the Classical Era is an important and radically new history, detailing the nature of the early piano and related instruments during the lifetimes of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. It promises to be a standard reference on the subject for many years to come.
