Full Listening (Alain Jacquon, piano)
With its repeated notes of variable speeds, which slowly awaken, fall asleep, then spring up again, always more numerous and varied, the theme is established and slowly progresses towards a paroxysm of trills using the whole range of the piano, finally falling away at the end of a long ralentando. Also, these last bars illustrate the homage that this work humbly pays to the great polish composer.
