More Info:

For his first-ever recording of music by Chopin, François-Frédéric Guy has chosen a 1905 Pleyel piano, a sublime instrument restored at the workshop of Pianos Balleron. Recorded in the splendid acoustics of the Arsenal de Metz, the pieces on this album remind him of the music that enchanted his childhood. François-Frédéric Guy's poetic imagination combines fantasy and rigor, both in his phrasing and in his dialogue with the unique and bewitching timbres of his instrument. This recital pays homage to the master pianists of the early twentieth century.
