Just think how many musical masterpieces and performances we would be without if it weren’t for that amazing instrument…the piano. Pastoral piano pieces, classical piano concertos, great gospel compositions, good ole rock and roll, jazz, soul and blues classics.
This weekend’s music thread honors not only the instrument itself, but the great composers and players, whether it be the good ole baby grand or the shiny tiny electric ones. Please feel free to add your personal favorites.
