(CH) Fifth Edition of the Harmoniques International Congress in Lausanne «Chopin et son temps» (9-12 Sept. 2010)
At the end of the 18th century, Vienna and London were the undisputed centres of piano-making, and home to distinct schools of piano-playing.
The beginning of the 19th century saw the rise of a new centre, Paris, which progressively eclipsed the other two. Nicknamed "Pianopolis", Paris in 1832 boasted more than a hundred and ninety-three piano-builders, many drawn from elsewhere in search of renown. Paris was a magnet, too, to young piano virtuosi ; it was only natural that Liszt and Chopin should be of their number.
