Notes & Reviews:

The boundless imagination of a highly gifted Polish composer received a warm welcome from Parisians, but their noble salons of the mid-nineteenth century were too small for a symphony orchestra. This did not mean, however, that the public had to do without piano concertos. The Ensemble Concertant Frankfurt has recorded the two piano concertos by Frédéric Chopin with string quintet accompaniment - with double bass and on the basis of the German first edition of 1833. The young composer Frédéric Chopin was a master of self-marketing. He introduced himself to the Parisian salons in 1832 with his Piano Concerto No. 1, a work composed by him in his native Poland in order to advertise his talent. The performance with string quintet created a sensation; it brought him instant fame and more concert invitations than he could accept. Music publishers also stood in line, and a year later Schlesinger was able simultaneously to publish the work in three versions in France, Germany, and England.
