You're welcome.

Indeed, this is sophisticated salon music in the best sense of the word, which is far above the other many (often unimaginative or boring) pieces at that time. It's not too simple, but also not too overly difficult, so that amateur pianists (like me ;) ) can play theses pieces well.

Thank you, especially for Gutmann, one of the favorite pupils of Chopin.
