Frédéric Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 1

Margarita Höhenrieder, Riccardo Minasi, Orchestra La Scintilla
{{ message.content }}

Margarita Höhenrieder spent years searching for the authentic sound of Frédéric Chopin's piano works. Which instrument of its time reflected Chopin's music most convincingly? Chopin himself had given the answer in 1831: "Pleyel's instruments are the ultimate"! The choice for the recording therefore fell on a Pleyel fortepiano, built in Paris around 1855 and expertly restored using historical materials and methods. It is absolutely identical in construction to the instrument that Chopin owned and thus represents an authentic sound testimony. The Orchestra La Scintilla also plays on historical instruments under the direction of Riccardo Minasi. Margarita Höhenrieder's careful reconstruction of the authentic Chopin sound gives the listener extremely interesting insights into music history.
