A very rare small, portable fortepiano
The Orphica Piano library offers an very special little piano: Invented by Carl Leopold Röllig, the small portable piano type was exclusively built by piano maker Joseph Donal at the end of the 18th century.
Produced for merely about 15 years, the Orphica remains one of the rarest pianos today – worldwide, only 30 instruments have been preserved at the very most. Inventor Röllig was reminded of the “Lyre of Orpheus”, so he chose the name accordingly for what happens to be a predecessor of today’s portable keyboard.
The instrument featured in this sample library was built around 1798 and offers a slinky, charming and lively piano tone unlike any regular piano sound – thanks to its small size featuring three octaves, it has a different main focus: Twinkle-toed, yet present with chocolate-like mids and with the typical piano-like grace, it can be great for any piano track asking for a fresh, unconsumed sound.
