COMPOSITIONS compositions


The Rondo in C minor, composed in 1825, published by Brzezina of Warsaw, is notable for its unusual formal shaping: the episodes come in pairs. This work is based on a highly original tonal plan. The figurational bridge passages are marked by a wealth of diverse figurations, but the themes are as yet lacking that melodic distinctness and singing character so typical of Chopin.
