Facsimile Edition of the Manuscript Held in the Warsaw Music Society

Chopin—Facsimile Edition, A IV/7/4a.
Warsaw, 2006. Oblong, 21 x 16 cm, 2 vols: 2, 92 pp. Full-color
halftone of the autograph fair copy. This is the first version of the
work which can be assigned to the composer’s youthful period. The only
evidence we have of its date is a handwritten annotation that appears
on the ms
“Pisane przez Fr. Chopin w r 1824 /
Kolberg” (”written by Fr.
1824 / Kolberg”). The composition is
written on a small sheet of paper which the composer probably folded
into four and enclosed with a letter, sent to Wilhelm Kolberg.
Commentary (Pol-Eng-Ger-Sp-Fr-Jp) by Andrzej Spóz. Bound in blue
