Item Number: WN.C002

These brilliant variations were composed by Chopin in 1824. The theme is taken from the final aria of Rossini's opera 'Cenerentola' (Cinderella) where the heroine bids a joyous farewell to all her days spent as a house-keeper. Hurrah! In this virtuosic arrangement the tricky bits are shared between the top two instuments, (with the Alto taking the lead in the slow variation) making it a little less exhausting than the original, but just as much fun!
