There is a Chopin Prelude (in E minor) that most pianists learn early on, as it is not technically difficult, and is fun to play. I was listening to the radio the other day and heard a pianon concerto, where the opening notes of the melody were exactly the same (but in a different rhythm) as the Chopin Prelude.....I later found out that it was written by a contemporary of Chopin, that Chopin was intimately familiar with this composer's work, and the piano concerto pre-dated the prelude. Should I think any less of Chopin?
do you happen to recall what the the other piece was and by whom?
