Thanks to my secret friend for directing me to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bvBnqSId3E Supposedly, it has been on YouTube for a long time, but it is the first time I have seen it. At the 6:50 mark is what is so special and thrilling to me. I just love this and will watch and listen to the video many more times. And look at the way Thibaudet is dressed, the ruffled sleeves, his hair... I love it! (oh, I said that already, sorry) What an eye-opener as far as the size of the piano keys! I have always suspected that the keys on Chopin’s pianos were narrower, but I never actually saw them or heard someone say so definitively. Sure helps me understand how it was possible for him (Chopin) to reach some of the music he wrote. (And too bad for me that piano keys gradually got wider over time.) But isn’t that the most gorgeous-looking piano?
