Bach Toccata in E minor BWV914; Partita No 1 in B flat BWV825

Beethoven 6 Bagatelles Op.126

Rameau Suite in E (1706)

Mozart Variations on "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" K265

Chopin Scherzo No 1 in B minor Op 20

Bach's Toccatas are early works, and show his interest in integrating different European styles; his Partitas are much later, and he was sufficiently pleased with No 1 to make it his first ever published work.

This is Mozart's best-known set of variations, probably written in Paris around the time of his mother's death.

Beethoven's late Bagatelles are his last piano works, they are perfect miniatures containing a world of expressivity and insight.

Chopin's first scherzo was written in Vienna; the composer was homesick and based one part on a Polish Christmas carol.
