Sebastian Erard (1752-1855), French piano builder. He started in Paris as an apprentice to a harpsichord builder, but this changed after he saw the arrival of some early English square pianos, and by 1777 he was constructing his own. The evolution of his designs impressed not only the Frnech but also Louis XVI, and he was therefore granted a license to produce pianos. John Broadwood (1732-1812), British, was the founder of the piano manufacturer Broadwood and Sons. Along with William Stodart and Americus Backers, he was credited for devising the prototype for the grand piano, which eventually overtook sales of harpsichords. His other technical innovations include: adding a separate bridge for the bass notes, patenting the piano pedal in 1783 and expanding the then-standard five octave range upwards by half an octave, and then downwards by half an octave.
