The Greatest piano player alive is still playing, and we still love to hear his music.
The piano has never been played more than once in a concert hall or in a bar.
Yet the world’s greatest pianists are living their most famous lives.
Here’s a look at a few of the greatest pianoists of all time.
Frank Zappa The Greatest pianist Alive is the great-grandson of one of jazz’s most successful and influential musicians.
Born on September 25, 1939, in New York City, Frank Zappas first piano lessons were at age 8.
“It was a very small house in a very large neighborhood,” Zappa told NPR’s John Sweeney in 2012.
“We had a small piano and an electric piano and a couple of guitars, but I was the only piano in the house.
I started learning the piano at 14.
And then when I was a teenager I started doing all these things.
I was doing piano lessons, I was studying, I had a band.
I had this whole ensemble of musicians that I loved playing with.”
Zappa, who has been credited with inventing the instrument, went on to become one of the most influential musicians of all-time.
He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1992 and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
His best-known recordings include “Hail Mary,” “I Will Follow You,” “Trouble in Paradise,” “The Love Song of J. Edgar Hoover,” and “The Man Who Sold the World.”
Zappa has been a founding member of The Grateful Dead since 1972.
Zappa died in May 2018.
