Bizet composed these variations in 1855 or 1856. He dedicated them to Eduard Reuss. Bizet’s biographer Henri Hell believes Bizet wrote these variations as a thank you to Reuss for his help in Bizet’s getting a job at the Conservatoire. Bizet had submitted this work to the Conservatoire as an examination piece, but Bizet failed to win any prizes. The Musical Bouquet writer François-Joseph Fétis believed Bizet’s failure was due Bizet not following Conservatoire rules and Bizet used the Opera Comique orchestra for part of the variations. Bizet was influenced by both Schumann and Liszt in his writing the B minor Variations Chromatiques de Concert Piano Sheet Music notes. Bizet dedicated these Variations to Reuss after Bizet won first prize with the musical composition “L’Arlésienne.” Bizet conducted the piece himself in concert in Bizet’s home town of Marseilles on 29 October 1872. Bizet’s friend Ernest Guiraud praised Bizet’s Variations Chromatiques de Concert Piano Sheet Music
