Chopin in the Blogosphere:

Chopin’s Pianos

From the blog earideas, a chance to listen to one of the programs from the BBC’s Chopin Experience programs. (The BBC’s rather maddening policy is to pull all of their audio after 7 days). The audio is a bit distorted and “swimmy” and of a rather low bandwidth, but still worth a listen...listen for a performance of the Barcarolle, Op. 60, on the Pleyel piano to your left, from collector Alex Cobbe’s house in Surrey, England

Catherine Bott, Radio 3’s early music guru, presents a programme about Chopin’s pianos, part of the station’s ‘Chopin Experience‘ from last weekend. Fascinating social and economic history plus loads of music.
