…not many recordings so infallibly evoke a place and time as this one does. The instrument used is a copy (by David Winston) of a delicate, pearly toned piano made by Joseph Brodmann in 1823.
The fortepiano (copy of an 1823 Brodmann) by David Winston delivers a full, delectable matured sound with fabulous contrasting dynamic ability.
A jewel in the crown…Chopin’s 1846 Pleyel…now beautifully restored by David Winston
There is a wonderful warmth of sound and depth of tone from the focal point of this recording–Beethoven’s fortepiano built by Thomas Broadwood in 1817, and quite magnificently restored by David Winston.
