Take a few moments to enjoy Frédéric Chopin's Rondo à la Krakowiak Op. 14, performed by Idil Biret and Robert Stankovsky with the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra:
Of all the piano + orchestra works Chopin wrote, this one has (arguably) the most beautiful introduction. A soft, meditation where the piano hums a melody, the woodwinds lag to complete it, and the strings soar above. The rondo itself is probably one of the least well known of Chopin's works, which isn't too much of a surprise, but it is a delightful dance that makes for great morning time music.
