Etymology[edit]

From Italian piano, from Latin plānus.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Piano n (genitive Pianos, plural Pianos)

  1. (chiefly literary or exalted) piano (musical instrument)

Usage notes[edit]

  • Although Klavier is the commoner word in all contexts, it would not be unusual to say of a renowned pianist: Er ist ein Meister am Piano. (“He’s a master of the piano.”). However, it would be likely to sound odd if the word were used in non-professional contexts, such as referring to a piano in one’s living-room or to one’s child’s piano lessons.
