A Natural History of the Piano

A new title for Souvenir Press this autumn, A NATURAL HISTORY OF THE PIANO by Stuart Isacoff has been reviewed in the UK’s three leading classical music magazines, and they all agree: it’s something special.

Classical Music magazine made it Editor’s Choice, calling it “vastly entertaining and wonderfully informative. Isacoff always seems to come up with that extra piece of background or a juicy anecdote. [A] comprehensive and quite brilliant book.”

BBC Music Magazine gives A NATURAL HISTORY OF THE PIANO a five-star rating, and describes it as “a treat for all pianists and pianophiles alike, one that leaves behind a rare glow of warmth.”

Gramophone magazine devoted a double-page spread to the book, calling it a “richly informative book” that “should inspire piano novices to investigate the world of what the author calls ‘the most important instrument ever created’.”

A NATURAL HISTORY OF THE PIANO is out now as an ebook and as a beautiful hardcover, the ideal Christmas gift for the pianist in your life.
