Charmingly elegant creations of a seven-year-old, Polonaise No 11 in G minor and Polonaise No 12 in B flat major date from 1817, the former (Chopin’s earliest known piece) being published in Warsaw around the time of its composition, the latter in Cracow in January 1934 (in a facsimile of a copy written out by the composer’s father).

La Polonaise no11 en sol mineur et la Polonaise no12 en si bémol majeur datent de 1817. Elégantes et charmantes créations d’un enfant de sept ans, la première fut publiée à Varsovie au moment de sa composition (c’est la première œuvre connue de Chopin), tandis que la seconde ne le fut qu’en janvier 1934, à Cracovie (sous la forme d’un fac-similé d’une copie faite par le père du compositeur).

Die Polonaisen Nr.11 in g-Moll und Nr.12 in B-Dur, reizvoll elegante Schöpfungen eines Siebenjhrigen, sind 1817 entstanden. Die g-Moll-Polonaise (Chopins ältestes bekanntes Werk) wurde in etwa zum Zeitpunkt ihrer Komposition in Warschau veröffentlicht, die in B-Dur im Januar 1934 in Krakau (als Faksimile einer vom Vater des Komponisten erstellten Kopie).
