I've seen this work listed in complete lists of Chopin's works, but does anyone have any information on it? How is there a recording of the piece - I've never even seen the sheet music. Has anyone? It really intrigues me that a Chopin-lover like myself could never even stumble upon the music to this strange piece (I say strange because it's the only piece he wrote with the flute), or find any recordings of it other than the one found on this site. Thoughts?

actually I was at a Chopin concert where I study and they played it (among masterpieces). It's a youth piece. surprisingly, the piano part is very pour, but there are nice flute variations.
In a week I am going to play there the first movement of the 2nd concerto...

Well, those pieces are still on debate about their Chopin authenticity. How can people be sure that they're Chopin's? Chopin actually asked his friends to burn all unpublished manuscripts, but it seems that these people still keep his sketches that he might forget to take with him when he visited their places?

Congratulations! I've never attempted Chopin's concertos. They're hard!

I've finally found the score!!! Go to http://vkgfx.com/scores/chopin/posthumous/ and click on the one that says "variation 7." I can't believe I found the score! You're right about the piano part being very poor. I wonder why Chopin wouldn't make it more exciting. I guess that's why he didn't want this little experiment published.

Also, go back to the parent directory, and you'll find a lot of great Chopin works, including some rare transcriptions. If you go back even further, you can find a lot of pieces by many other composers too. It's a great resource now that IMSLP is gone Sad .

Wow! This resource is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing the link here! I'll probably download everything before something might happen like IMSLP.
