Chopin was renowned for his love of Pleyel pianos, which were considered to be the Rolls Royce of his era; superior in tone quality and lightness of touch.

Joshuas profound knowledge of performance traditions and recordings of the late 19th Century, coupled with the use of this beautiful original 1842 Pleyel instrument, promise an unforgettable, volatile and deeply affecting musical deliverance of these masterworks.
