The famous Spanish piano… that Chopin NEVER played

THEIR greatest claim to fame was that Frederic Chopin had tinkled on the keys.

But it turns out this was never true.

Now a judge has ordered the owners of a former monastery in Mallorca to stop claiming that the famous composer ever played it.

The Polish pianist spent a brief spell on the island in the winter of 1838 with his lover, the French writer, George Sand. But while he stayed at the monastery, the piano in question only dates back to the 1850s.
