BBC announces shows about pianos
And Radio 3's controller, Roger Wright, has praised pianos for their emotional versatility in a statement.
"The piano is a single instrument that has the ability to convey a range of emotions and the power of a whole orchestra," he explained.
"Over six weeks we will be exploring this remarkable instrument: its history, mechanics and influence, as well as delving into the lives of the people behind the instrument and the music created for it."
When it comes to the season's content, Radio 3, for example, is set to air the final of the Leeds International Piano Competition, with programmes on the subject of its finalists set for BBC Four.
Those who wish to learn how to play the music instrument can also take part in an internet based masterclass based around it.
Instrument fans who search the term 'piano' on the BBC iPlayer will currently find a lengthy list of results.
