打击乐器 (Percussion Instruments)

即使是最基本的扬琴 (hammered dulcimer) 也拥有13条弦,演奏方式是利用小锤子敲击乐器上方的弦。扬琴这个名字取自于拉丁字,意指“甜美的声音” (sweet sound) ;扬琴源自于洋琴 (cimbalom) ,而洋琴来自匈牙利,其上装有48条弦,也是使用小锤子进行演奏;今日的钢琴则是由扬琴及洋琴逐步发展而成;您曾经看过钢琴内部吗?当有人按下琴键时,控制杆会抬起一个锤子,然后锤子会敲击琴弦并发出音调;您认为这是怎么发生的?


The hammered dulcimer, in its simplest form, is an instrument with 13 strings, played by beating the strings with a small hammer. The name "dulcimer" comes from Latin and means "sweet sound." The hammered dulcimer developed from the cimbalom, an instrument from Hungary with 48 strings that is played with small hammers. The piano of today has evolved from both the cimbalom and the hammered dulcimer. Have you ever seen the inside of a piano? When someone presses a piano key, a lever raises a hammer that then strikes the string producing a musical note. How do you suppose this came about?
