Since the piano was invented, its look & feel have changed very little. Some might even call it the perfect instrument.
That has not stopped the French car company Peugeot from working with piano maker Pleyel to try & do basically that: build a better piano. When you first look at it, the piano looks more like something you would find on a spaceship. Peugeot says its shape is based on the hull of a boat.
But they say its most important quality is that the piano sounds better & clearer to both the player & the listener.
After watching these videos of pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell playing Chopin on it, what do you think? Can you improve on how a piano sounds as well as how it looks?
