Written during composition studies with Elsner, realising the classic norms, the stile brillant technique and the principle of combining virtuosic texture with folk themes typical of the era. Themes, with the exception of folk themes, are richly ornamented, figurative links operate in a bravura manner with scales and arpeggiated passages.
Critical source-edition edited by Jan Ekier and Paweł Kamiński based on manuscripts, copies approved by Chopin himself, and first editions. Its purpose is to present the works of Chopin in authentic form.
Rondo in C major for 2 pianos, published posthumously, is to be found in the volume 35 B IX.
