I am working on the programme notes for my piano diploma exam. One of the 3 pieces in my repertoire is Chopin's Variations Brillantes Op.12.
I have been looking for information for this piece but by now, the only thing i know is that this song is related to an opera called "Ludovic" originally composed by Louis Joseph Hérold (1791-1833), and later continued by Jacques Fromental Halevy in 1833 after Hérold’s death. So, is this piece from Chopin included in the opera or just have some relations to it?
Can anyone please tell me something about this piece? Thanks.
