A high-res B&W version of the Toccata had been posted by alfor in 2012 (Statkowski vol. 3):

Carl Bial (1833-1892) is perhaps best remembered for his piano solo
arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasia.

Here is a sonata by Mirecki opus 14 (nms).

I guess it's Frantiszek Mirecki, Polish.

I would appreciate information on this.

Thanks

P.S. I believe this is the right thread (Unknown Composer, at least for me).

Correct.

From Grove:
(b Kraków, bap. 31 March 1791; d Kraków, 29 May 1862). Polish composer, conductor and teacher. When he was a child, he studied the piano with his father, who was an organist. In 1810 he began studies at the University of Kraków, specializing in Greek, and in 1814 went to Vienna, where he studied the piano with Hummel while acting as secretary and librarian to Count Joseph Maximilian Ossoliński. His first works (polonaises and marches for piano) were published in Vienna and he met Beethoven, who showed interest in Mirecki's work and in Polish folk melodies. From 1816 to 1817 he was in Italy. He then moved to Paris, where he studied composition with Cherubini. The latter awoke in Mirecki an interest in the works of earlier Italian masters and set him the task of arranging 50 psalms by Benedetto Marcello. (This arrangement became well known throughout Europe.) In 1822 he went to Italy again and during 1825–6 he was conductor of the Italian opera company in Lisbon. He and the company visited France and England. From 1826 to 1838 he was based in Genoa, where he gave singing lessons as well as working as artistic director and conductor of the opera company. In 1838 he returned to Kraków, where he opened a singing school, which was later reorganized (1841) as the first public music school in Kraków. Mirecki became the school's director and professor of singing, and was thus responsible for the education of generations of singers for the Kraków Opera. From 1844 to 1850 he was also artistic director and conductor of the Kraków Opera.
