  • Though it is called a Coronation polonaise, it wasn't written for any such occasion: the only Russian emperor to be coronated in Poland was Nicolas I. His coronation took place on 24 (12 o.s.) May 1829 (in Russian Wikipedia). Kurpiński's polonaise was performed in June 1825, when even Alexander I was alive.
