In the making of music, the invention of Bartolommeo di Francesco Cristofori, harpsichord maker of Padua, who invented the pianoforte, and the craftsmanship of the Stadivari family brought to the perfection of the violin, play no small part in enlarging the art of Western Music.  Curt Sachs, one of the world's most distinguished musicologists, tells of the progress and variation in musical instruments from the bullroarers of the most primitive men to the electric jazz instruments of our own times.
