Historical Tunings on the Modern Concert Grand
This interesting article from the U.K. piano page provides a brief history on tuning and "Temperament."
Temperament involves the process and result of making slight changes to the pitches of a pure musical scale, so
that the octave may be conveniently divided into a usable number of notes and intervals. Throughout history, there
have been several different approaches taken to temperament. Different temperaments create different sounds, and
in most cases, tuning in one direction creates a sacrifice to tuning in another. Fascinating reading for those
interested in the workings and history of their instrument. Reviewed 7/24/99
