GG: Pleyel

As GG was fond of saying about those who insisted that Bach could not be
rendered in any viable way on the modern piano--

Chopin composed on a piano that "has about as much in common with pianos of
today as his pianos had in common with the harpsichord" yet he didn't notice
any "big back-to-the-Pleyel movement" by original instrument enthusiasts.

True?  I don't know, but it's still pretty funny.
