The 1st Chopin Festival Hamburg offers a unique opportunity to experience the keyboards of the city’s Museum of Arts and Crafts, the first festival of its kind in Europe. The individual tonal qualities of these instruments can be appreciated during recitals of Classical, Romantic and Impressionist music, with a focus on Chopin, given by six leading specialists in the museum’s own rooms. Pleyel, Brodmann and Broadwood instruments of Chopin’s time are used, as is a modern Steinway, allowing the listener to contrast the fascinatingly divergent sounds of these important historical instruments.
