Pedals

Most pianos today have three pedals. The far right sustain pedal broadens dynamic possibilities by raising all dampers, thus suspending all notes. The middle sostenuto pedal creates a similar effect by only raising the dampers of the notes played while being pressed.The far left una corda pedal changes tone color by shifting the entire keybed action to the right. Each hammer then only strikes two strings instead of three, softening the overall sound. When used sensitively, pedals allow musicians to achieve new levels of musicality.
