Although the review doesn't mention the use of a historical instrument in the recording of Paisiello's keyboard concertos, the use of the word 'pianoforte' suggests that a fortepiano is used. That is not the case: the original recordings appeared on an Italian label which explains the word 'pianoforte' which is just the same as the English 'piano', meaning the modern concert grand. Pietro Spada definitely doesn't use a historical instrument.
