Somber Piano MusicPiano for the Soul

Composers know how to evoke many moods with their piano-inspired compositions as the ivory keys always seem to enhance and complete an opus of any greatness. First named, “un cimbalo di cipresso di piano e forte” (a keyboard of cypress with soft and loud), we can thank the Grand Prince Of Tuscany’s Keeper of the Instruments, Bartolemeo Cristofori for assembling in the early 1700s what we know of today as a piano. The touch of a pianist controls volume and expression and brings an elegance and richness to every production. SmartSound has an extensive selection of background music—from piano solos to full-scale orchestral productions.
