I hadn't considered the second possibility you raised, it makes sense (pretty macabre though!). Thanks for the replies.

Our edwardianpiano has posted some interesting Chopin-on-antique instruments videos. I hadn't realized how much more of these 19th-century piano performances were around these days.

Here is a real gem:
Janina Fialkowska plays and explains an 1848 Pleyel

And this is fun-- a music box plays 10/3, though only the A section:
Chopin on a Victorian Music Box

Hi folks. I'd like a look at the autograph of op 10 no 5. It's listed here http://en.chopin.nifc.pl/chopin/manuscripts/detail/page/3/id/4 Anyone got a copy? or how do I get it from The Fryderyk Chopin Institute? Thanks.

Looks like you can order it from NIFC here:

A bit pricey but apparently available.

Thanks for bringing this up-- I didn't realize they had manuscript facsimiles. I own the National Edition volume of the Etudes but no manuscript copies.

Thanks. Hopefully they're in stock as Amazon are out! 68 Euros - I'll have to think about it. I found some Korean channel on youtube that displays it but the detail is lacking. http://www.yourepeat.com/g/%E8%87%AA%E7%AD%86%E8%AD%9C/

An aspect of Polish musical culture we may not have experienced....

(OK, the song's from Ukraine and the Ukrainian woman is a man, but it's in Polish here.)
