about

These eleven minatures for toy piano present a kaleidoscope of musical colours and moods. At turns quizzical, wistful, loping, and bluesy, The Little Toy Piano Book casts a spell, and draws you into its intimate and fragile world. Specializing in prepared piano, percussion and toy instruments, Erik Griswold has created a musical universe all his own that is "sincere" (neural.it), "playful" (igloo magazine), "colourful and refreshingly unpretentious" (Paris Transatlantic). Griswold is a Schoenhut toy piano artist.
