The piano can either produce one of the most beautiful or one of the most horrible sounds known to the musical ear. The sound emitted depends on two very important things:
- The skill of the person playing
- How well tuned the piano is
When played well, piano music is haunting, emotive, powerful. It has the power to make you laugh, or cry, to lift your spirits, or make you suddenly aware of your place in the big picture.
Of course, when played badly, you will also be reduced to tears, but the motivation will be slightly different.
