 Frederic Chopin – Grand Fantasia on Polish Airs for Piano and Orchestra, period instrument recording

Grand Fantasia on Polish Airs for Piano and Orchestra in A-Major, Op. 13.

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, on period instruments. Emanuel Ax, Érard piano. Conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras. Composed by F. Chopin (1810-49).

I have the CD this is on- I highly recommend it! The Honourable 1851 Erard Piano sounds so beautiful. I find the following passages especially beautiful, with a haunting quality:

6:18-6:23, 6:29-6:31, 10:11-10:40.
