The Music of Life: Bartolomeo Cristofori & the Invention of the Piano

Reviewed by:

Telling the story of Bartolomeo Cristofori and his invention of the pianoforte (the piano), Elizabeth Rusch writes of challenges and triumphs had while designing the instrument. Music terms are strewn throughout like chapter headings along with a timeline, offering multiple points of entry for the reader. At the back is a timeline page, information about the three remaining Cristofori pianos and information about pianos of today. From an English class perspective, there is also a section about how the author reconstructed his life from various sources.
