Notes & Reviews:

In 1830 Ignace Pleyel, music publisher and royal instrument maker, established his factory at the Hôtel Cromot du Bourg in the heart of Paris. This was one year after he founded the "Ignace Pleyel and Co. Society" with composer-pianist Frederic Kalkbrenner. In this 18th-century mansion, the Pleyel family set up a concert hall in the salons of the first floor, where they hosted elite musicians and amateurs, and introduced them to new pianos from the factory floor. Chopin was genuinely partial towards Pleyel pianos, and owned two Pleyel instruments: a grand piano and a pianino, on which he gave lessons.
