Ignace Pleyel, 1845, Paris

Ignace Pleyel, 1845, Paris. This instrument, in comparison to the Collection's 1835 model, shows an apparent effort by Pleyel to build a more outspoken piano. It is quite different from the Viennese pianos of the day, in construction and in sound, and also very unlike the pianos by its chief Paris competitor, Erard.
