Three years ago, Nils Henrik Asheim released "Mazurka - Remaking Chopin", a collaborative project with Gjertrud's Gypsy Orchestra. This release, which was awarded with Spellemannsprisen, the Norwegian Grammy, explored Chopin's Mazurkas, creating new versions with traditional music as its most important influence.

The new release has "researching" in the subtitle, as Asheim has been searching for Chopin in a historical instrument - a Collard & Collard square piano from the 1830s. He fell in love with the instrument during the last recording, at Ulefos Hovedgård.

The Collard & Collard piano offered new possibilities in the very playing of Chopin, and new insight into how his music sounded originally.

Chopin auf einem Klavier der berühmten Firma Collard & Collard von ca. 1830.

Nils Henrik Asheim wurde während einer früheren Aufnahme auf ein Collard & Collard Klavier aufmerksam. Das Instrument aus den 1830er Jahren beeindruckte den norwegischen Pianisten derartig, dass er beschloss Chopins Mazurken auf diesem neu einzuspielen.
