THE PIANO FORTE
Discussed in a Lecture Delivered by
J. A. Pennington Before Musical
Section of Woman's Club.
J. Alfied Pennington, director of tho
Scrnnton Conservatory of Music, de
livered an exceedingly interesting lec
ture last night before the music sec
tion of the Green Ridge Women's club,
taking as his theme "The Development
of the Piano-Forte."
He traced the development of this In
strument from the early ages of his
tory ami pointed out that as early as
the first century there were organs
with keys on them. The instrument
from which the piano was evolved was
the monochord, which was known to
the early Greeks.
The monochord had but one string,
and from It was evolved the clavichord,
which was an Instrument with many
strings. The action was caused by a
brass tangent, which pressed against
the strings and caused them to vibrate.
"The action of the clavichord," said
Mr. Pennington, "was &o slight and the
tone so tinkling that composers of
clavichord music wore obliged to raut
In many little extra nourishes. A ciuiv
ering effect could be produced on it
which cannot be on the modern piano,
and this loss is greatly to be deplored."
A contemporarj- of tho clavichord
was the harplsehord. On this Instru
ment tho key operated a piece of mech
anism which plucked the strings as
one would pluck tho strings of a harp,
producing a tone totally unlike tho
tone of the clavichord. Up to tho be
ginning of the eighteenth century, ho
said, the hammer had not been used to
produce tho tone.
In 1709 Chrlsto Farl, an Italian, In
vented a hammer action and produced
the first piano. It was a small, thin
toned instrument. The chief improve
ment on tho piano was tho invention of
the full Iron frnme by Babcock, an
American. This, he said, was later im
proved bj- Chlckerlng, and is now used
all over the world.
The Iron frame allows the uie of
heavier strings and a larger hammer,
thus Insuring a fuller and more sing
ing tone. Mr. Pennington said, that
nowhere were such splendid pianos
produced as In this country.
In conclusion, a number of selections
were rendered by several of the mem
