The Chopin Museum in Warsaw
(c) Remy Franck

Miami-based Chopin Foundation of the United States has donated a Pleyel upright piano dating from 1847 and containing Chopin’s signature to the Chopin Museum in Warsaw. The instrument has been on display in the Polish museum for the past few years as a deposit, but now the Chopin Foundation of the United States transferred the property rights to the Chopin Museum. The piano was selected by Chopin himself at the Pleyel factory in Paris for one of his pupils and it was at that person’s request that the composer put his signature inside the instrument so that it could be easily recognized.
