Chopin was renowned for his love of Pleyel pianos, which were considered the Rolls Royce of his era; superior in tone qualities and lightness of touch.
Joshua is one of the very few artists in the world today who specialises in traditional performance practice of Romantic repertoire on original instruments.
Her profound knowledge of recordings of the late 19th Century and deep understanding of traditional performance practice, coupled with the use of her own original 1853 Pleyel instrument, promise an unforgettable and deeply affecting musical deliverance of these masterworks.
