Based on the findings of Roy Howat in his forthcoming editions of Chopin’s etudes, this lecture-recital explores interpretative and editorial issues, which can be harder to intuit on modern instruments that vary considerably in touch, attack and voicing from those that Chopin used. Using the Museum’s Érard and Pleyel pianos from Chopin’s time, Roy Howat and Dr Elena Vorotko demonstrate how the characteristics of these instruments throw light on Chopin’s treatment of dynamics, articulation and pedal, and also on controversial matters of tempo.
