Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
- (chiefly literary or exalted) piano (musical instrument)
- 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.
