In the Rondo, however, a lack of contrast stifles the performance, his participation in the triumphant final chords (scored for orchestra alone) sounding absurd. Adam Harasiewicz's first movement is also forlorn and his Rondo theme deadpan, while his Romance is cack-handed, some abruptly rolled chords especially incongruous after the tender melody. Still, his rendition is better than Mieczysbw Horszowski's drive-through performance or Garrick Ohlsson's saccharine Romance, its mawkishness shattered by a punched-out melody.

' In writing for other instruments, 'Chopin's originality is gone': 'every new entry of the orchestra precipitates you from the delectable regions of imagination to the joyless deserts of the actual'. But 'such is the charm, loveliness, delicacy, elegance, and brilliancy of the details, that one again and again forgives and forgets their shortcomings as wholes'. For Niecks, the first movement of Op. 21 is salvaged by Chopin's 'tale full of sweet melancholy in a strain of lovely, tenderly-intertwined melody', and the third movement by 'its feminine softness and rounded contours, its graceful, gyrating, dance-like motions, its sprightliness and frolicsomeness .
