“When I feel in good form and strong enough to find my own individual sound, then I need a Pleyel piano.” “Pleyel pianos are the last word in perfection”.
Two quotes from Chopin, proving his preference of the Pleyel piano as the perfect medium for his artistic ideals. This new recording features a superb 1845 Pleyel Grand Piano, of the Frederick Historical Piano Collection in Ashburnham, Massachusetts, USA. Master pianist Yuan Sheng plays the complete ballades, impromptus, preludes and nocturnes, with exquisite taste, poetry and power, fully exploring the instrument’s unique possibilities. The booklet contains extensive background information on the instrument and its place in history.
