Description: A stylistically diverse selection of works composed in the first half of the 19th century, selected to display as fully as possible the capabilities of the piano built between 1845 and 1847 by the Traugott Berndt company, an instrument whose sound characteristics are eminently appropriate to the works being performed, despite its being of later date relative to these works. Marek Toporwski and Irmina Obońska (1845-47 Traugott Berndt fortepiano).
