Frédéric Chopin: Andante spianato et Grande Polonaise brillante in E-flat major, Op. 22,

which was composed between 1830 and 1834. The Grande Polonaise brillante in E-flat, set for piano and orchestra, was written first, in 1830-31. In 1834, Chopin wrote an Andante spianato in G, for piano solo, which he added to the start of the piece, and joined the two parts with a fanfare-like sequence. The combined work was published in 1836 as Op. 22, and was dedicated to Madame d'Este.

AND at 18.00 Frédéric Chopin: Variations on a Theme of Moore,for piano four hands, KKIVa/6, CT.228,

which was written when Chopin was a student living in Warsaw, this is the composer's only known work for piano, four-hands. Though it is an early effort, it is still of sufficient substance to make it worthy of the attention of both pianists and public. Part of its general neglect stems from its four-hand status, never a popular venue for pianists, though audiences have generally been favorable to it. When a duo team is formed, however, their preferences tend to be in the realm of two-piano repertory. (~ All Music Guide)
