Episode 2

As part of the Piano Season on the BBC, Lucie Skeaping presents the second of two programmes about the development of the piano during the eighteenth century.

Lucie continues her survey of the development of the period piano, ending in the early nineteenth century with instruments for which Beethoven and Haydn wrote music which were recognisable precursors of the modern concert grand piano.
