Choralion
Warsaw. In the house by the Rymarska Street, Chopin improvises on the choralion, an instrument invented by P. Brunner. Next day, "Gazeta Polska" describes his performance in the following way: "All the audience listened delighted to the charming tones reaching their ears, both the craft of the virtuoso and the excellence of the invention was admired."
Eolomelodicon (eolimelodicon) and its further versions: choralion (constructed by Brunner according to indications by Jakub Hoffmann) and the eolipantalion (invention by Jan Długosz) were a combination of a piano and organs, prototypes of today’s harmonium.  More information:
  • Krzysztof Rottermund Young Chopin and the aelopantalon (pl. Młody Chopin i aelopantalon) (article)
