Concert in the National Theatre andi Krakowiak Op. 14
Fryderyk Chopin delivers second concert in the National Theatre in Warsaw. Apart from the Concerto in F minor he performs Rondo a la Krakowiak and improvises. Karol Kurpiński is the conductor for the Orchestra of the National Theatre. After the first concert Chopin asks for different piano. Chopin described the concert (March 27) in the letter to Tytus Woyciechowski: "Due to the fact that that at the first concert "the groundfloor nagged for silent performance", then "at the second concert, I performed not on my own, but on the Vienna instrument."
During the coming days the reviews of the concert were published in newspapers. First review appeared on March 23 in "Kurier Warszawski", another on March 24 in "Gazeta Warszawska" and finally on March 25 in "Dziennik Powszechny Krajowy". More information:

George Sand writes a letter to Stefan Witwicki
George Sand writes a letter to Stefan Witwicki: "He writes so little, and at the same he is justified with his great exhaustion an illness, you have to forgive him. I tried to convince him to write a letter to you, but all ended with resolutions and promises, that is why I decided to write on my own, despite the fact that between his cough attacks and lessons it is difficult to find a quiet and calm moment. It proves how delicate is his health. Strong frost, which we experience here have bad influence on him. I am also ill almost all the time, and today I am writing to you despite my cold and fever."
