Improvements in the piano mechanism made it an instrument of great expressive potential. In the hands of virtuosos it became the number-one concert instrument and adopted various forms to become omnipresent in private homes. Thanks to the meticulous restoration of this pianoforte built by Michael Slocker, it may now be played again, enabling us to enjoy its sound.
