The Rondo in C major, originally planned as a work for solo piano, was reworked for two pianos in 1828. Yet Chopin did not allow it to be published, and it remained in his portfolio. It features a quite charming, nostalgic, minor-mode episode, repeated a couple of times, in which experts in Jewish folklore have discerned a Jewish provenance.
