The autograph of the Cantabile in B flat major bears the date ‘Paris, 1834’. This fourteen-bar album leaf could have found a place among the twenty-four ephemeral lyrics that make up the cycle of Preludes, Op. 28, yet the Cantabile in B flat major that was ultimately placed there (as No. 21) is a much weightier work. This Cantabile is graceful, tuneful and airy, but little more besides.
