The history of musical instruments is as old as that of humankind. The earliest instruments had practical uses such as hunting, signalling and warfare. This utilitarian use developed over the centuries into musical composition. This reference work traces the evolution of the traditional "families" of instruments from earliest times, and also profiles the world's instruments past and present. From glockenspiels and washboards to clarinets and violins - every instrument is listed in this volume. The development of musical trends, the virtuosos of every style of instrument and music and the technology that shaped their evolution are also featured.
