“I practice Chopin’s musical works on my 1845 Pleyel piano, which is identical to the one on which Chopin composed and played: this allows me to hear that music with the same sound, the same colours and tones that the composer heard in his ears and heart from that instrument.

Chopin: secondo me
THEY SAY ABOUT ME
"Often when you play Chopin it doesn't sound like you learned it. It sounds like you have composed it! It comes as naturally spontaneous and congenial to you as breathing or walking is to others."
"A clarity, a simplicity, an absence of roughness that entered places in the soul where no one had ever gone before, like to a sharp blade."
"Your value shines brightly, awakening in hearts such a hope and scent of beauty that all have been captured by your performance."
"...amazing how by seemingly barely sliding his fingers over the keys he could produce such light and deep feelings."
"Anyone with a feeling for Chopin will listen carefully to what is a new approach to this composer."
