The piano is an entire orchestra in itself – but sometimes its sound is a part of the big symphony orchestra. I would not want to miss that experience! says the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic's own pianist.

The grand piano stands on three legs. It has a row of 88 black and white keys and an extremely wide range due to the seven octaves. With its many possibilities the piano is like an orchestra within the orchestra. Inside the shell the piano strings are strung on an iron frame that looks almost like a harp. When the musician presses a key, a small hammer strikes the string, creating the sound.

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
