On Wednesday 4 October 1848, the Polish pianist and composer Frédéric Chopin gave his last public concert in Edinburgh. The Scotsman newspaper reported on “the infinite delicacy and finish of his playing, combined with great occasional energy never overdone.” Tobias Koch, whose refined concert at BEETHOVENinPRIMETIME met with great acclaim, has reconstructed Chopin’s only solo recital on an original Broadwood piano from 1847. Expect a historic look back in time, full of subtle nuance and expressive depth, over a full 90 minutes: just as it was 172 years ago. Unmissable!
