YAMAHA GRAND PIANOS| New Conservatory Series In 1887, only twenty years after Japan opened its doors to the Occident, Torakusu Yamaha founded and gave his name to the very first Japanese company to manufacture Western musical instruments. While that year thus marked an historic

occasion for Japan, 1900 saw arnother one: the

to

Yamaha company also began manutacture pianos. Shortly atter,

in 1904, the Yamaha piano won the Grand Prize at the St, Louis World

Exhibition. They made fine pianos

then, but incomparably better ones

today. This is because Yamaha, while

completely dedicated to traditional craftsmanship, has always held that

innovations and progress are an essential part of piano-making. And

now, nearly a century later, today's Yamaha piano is a musical monarch

cherished and revered around the world for its tonal excellence, and played and praised by some of the greatest concert artists of our time.

has been the most awesome develop-

Our perceptions of earlier musics have

broadened enormously. Our familiarity with

the musics of other cultures is far greater than those of previous generations, and, indeed of other centuries.

come and read the books, and, in theory, pass the prescribed examinations and attain the

screened grades of perception to abide by. Only after a certain body of information has been processed is one allowed to have access

to the next layer. One has to earn one's knowledge, and to earn the next level. Such

levels, strata, have been through the ages carefully judged, eked out, almost parsimoniously, to ration the growing mind with information, with layers of perception, pre-

judged by millenia of teachers, conservative by their very nature. The intuitive teachers, they of the vaulting imagination and perception in relation to individual students, have been rare indeed through history. But they are there in every
