The greatest instrument?

I think the greatest instrument is unquestionably the human voice, but after that comes the piano.

No other acoustic instrument can match the piano's expressive range, and no electric instrument can match its mystery. [Kenneth Miller quote included in The Essential Piano]

The pianoforte is the most important of all musical instruments: its invention was to music what the invention of printing was to poetry. [Bernard Shaw]
