This video demonstrates how the piano-forte is Chopin's instrument, because he meticulously chose the dynamics of every note to make his works sounds as beautiful as they do.

Has a piano: plays Bach

I once asked an organist if he could play Chopin on the organ. He said he'd need to grow more fingers and a couple of extra feet.

Beautiful instrument you got there!
I am a harpsichord player, so most of the (melodic) passages sound good to me :D
Number 6 especially sounds just like something from the baroque period.
btw. Chopin loved Scarlatti, so it may be not that far fetched^^

I love the sound of harpsichord. There should be more of them.

It's so strange hearing Chopin without dynamics.

Still, fascinating hearing the harmonies this way.

Very interesting experience all around.

Chopin is great and a proof is that even with harpsichord he remains great!

Creo que sonarían mejor las obras de Mozarat, ya que Mozart si utilizaba este instrumento y componía en el, dándole un sonido a realeza, pero las obras de Chopin tienen una mejor sonoridad con la suavidad del piano

Sempre achei esse instrumento tão legal

One of Chopin's teachers was Adalbert Zywuny, who was a chlavichordist rather than a pianist. I believe some of his mazurkas sound OK on the fortepiano even with little pedaling, and therefore adequate on the harpsichord. His more "muscular" pieces not so much.

Don't worry guys Mozart is staring at us for him.

Well done. Harpsichord has a way of exposing every flaw in your playing.
