Musical Instruments eBook

By Darcy Kuronen.

Enhanced with 48 audio and video clips of expert musicians performing on rare and historical instruments, this eBook edition of MFA Highlights: Musical Instruments brings the world-renowned collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to life. Musical instruments are among the most meaningful artifacts produced by humankind, a marriage of technology, artistry, symbolism, religion, and entertainment. This title presents more than 100 examples, spanning a breadth of centuries and cultures, to offer a brilliant array of instruments as producers of both aural and visual delight. The pieces included here — which range from an ancient Greek trumpet to a modern lap steel guitar, and from earthenware panpipes to the complex Indonesian gamelan — are remarkable not only for the myriad sounds they produce, but also for their varied and often extraordinarily beautiful appearance. Musical Instruments offers a vivid encounter with the sights and sounds of a rich collection, enhanced to offer an accessible and fascinating introduction to the artistry and significance of musical instruments around the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Darcy Kuronen is Department Head and Pappalardo Curator of Musical Instruments at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
