Cat tries to play the Chopin Fantasie-Impromptu (which the composer didn't want published!)
In China, a young woman tries to play the Chopin Fantasie-Imprompu in C# Minor, Op. 66, and her cat wants to join in.
The work is controversial because Chopin regarded it as an experiment and didn’t want it published. He based the passagework on similar material in the fast finale of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. This is not my favorite Chopin.
