Did you know…

Strings are the vibrating element that produces sound in an instrument. The earliest surviving string instruments are the Lyres of Ur, plucked chordophones which exist in fragments and date back 4,500 years.

Strings in terms of a Western orchestra are usually considered to be members of the violin family: violin, viola, violincello or cello, and contrabass or double bass, which are usually played with a bow. Pianos and harps are also string instruments, one hammered and therefore technically percussion and the other plucked.

Baroque composers such as Bach, Vivaldi and Handel pioneered new forms like sonatas and concertos, and the four component string instruments in early baroque work tended to work as soprano, alto, tenor and bass.
