Thierry de Brunhoff, piano (Bechstein)
Recorded in 1973
In 1974, one year after he made this beautiful and poetic recording of the complete Chopin Nocturnes, the French pianist Thierry de Brunhoff (born in 1934, studied with Alfred Cortot and Edwin Fischer) decided to give up his career to retire and become a monk at the Benedictine Abbey SaintBenoît d'EnCalcat (pictured on the second photograph), where he lives until this day.
