The piano is a struck-string instrument. A felt-covered hammer hits a string and then quickly bounce back, allowing the string to vibrate at its resonant frequency. The piano allows loudness control, thus suitable for playing to large crowd. The modern piano is credited to Italian Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655-1731), who resided in Padua, Italy. The piano combines earlier instruments, such as clavichord and harpsicord.
