Description

Toy Piano for Hire

Though originally made as a child's toy, the toy piano has been used in serious classical and contemporary musical contexts. The most famous example is the "Suite for Toy Piano" (1948) by John Cage. Other works in classical music for the instrument include "Ancient Voices of Children" by George Crumb and a number of pieces by Mauricio Kagel, and Contemporary quartet, Cordis, in Richard Grimes' 2010 composition, Angelstyle. Steve Beresford has used toy pianos (along with many other toy instruments) in his improvised music.
