Compuesta por Joseph Haydn, esta obra es una serie de variaciones sobre un tema en fa menor.

A. Berg: Piano Sonata, Op. 1
La Sonata para piano, Op. 1, de Alban Berg, es una obra temprana del compositor austriaco y forma parte del repertorio del período del post-romanticismo y la Segunda Escuela de Viena. Esta sonata muestra la influencia de la música de Arnold Schoenberg, mentor de Berg, y su estilo combina elementos del romanticismo tardío y la emergente atonalidad del siglo XX.

Las 24 Preludios, Op. 28, de Frédéric Chopin son una colección de breves piezas para piano que abarcan todas las tonalidades mayores y menores. Consideradas como una de las obras más importantes y representativas del repertorio pianístico, cada preludio presenta un carácter único y una expresión emotiva profunda, mostrando la maestría de Chopin en la composición para piano solo.
