“Though originally made as a child’s toy, the toy piano has been used in serious classical and contemporary musical contexts.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. Steve Beresford has used toy pianos (along with many other toy instruments) in his improvised music.” From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Silvia Corda plays also the toy piano and some other keyboard instruments such as indian harmonium, melodica, glockenspiel. Her repertoire includes composers like John Cage, Matthew McConnell, Karlheinz Essl and her own compositions and improvisations as well.
