20 July 1829. Chopin graduates from the Central School of Music. Józef Elsner’s report titled Classes in music composition, or a counter point to the practical aspect states the final grades awarded by the professor. Among the second-graders: Antoni Orłowski (very profound talent) and August Freyer (profound talent); among the third-graders: Antoni Rodziński ("sufficient talent for the concert style"), Józef Linowski ("a great deal of talent for the church style") and "Szopen Friderik: exceptional talent, a musical genius".

Chopin comes back to Paris around 23 July.
