Chopin plays for the Radziwiłłs, 1829 (painting by Henryk Siemiradzki, 1887). In September 1828 Chopin, while still a student, visited Berlin with a family friend, zoologist Feliks Jarocki, enjoying operas directed by Gaspare Spontini and attending concerts by Carl Friedrich Zelter, Felix Mendelssohn and other celebrities. Chopin made his last public appearance on a concert platform at London's Guildhall on 16 November 1848, when, in a final patriotic gesture, he played for the benefit of Polish refugees. By this time he was very seriously ill, weighing under 99 pounds (. . Elements of Chopin's music can be traced in many of Liszt's later works. Liszt later transcribed for piano six of Chopin's Polish songs.

Leff Pouishnoff was born in that fulcrum of musical genius, Odessa, but spent most of his professional career in London. But whilst Pouishnoff was not an artist on that elevated level, he possessed many qualities, and his best recordings attest to a luminous tone and a fine structural awareness. He was an exclusive Columbia artist from 1922 to 1929 and then recorded nothing for two decades when he was taken up by HMV in 1948 for just two 78s. A decade later he made stereo LPs and the saga of these Saga LPs provides a fascinating postscript to the set.
