When revolution broke out in Paris in 1848, Chopin and many of his acquaintances came to England. Pleyel recommended that Chopin place himself in the hands of John Broadwood & Sons, from whom he chose three pianos; one to be shipped to Scotland, one for his lodgings and this for his public performances in England.
