This one is Chopin's Minute Waltz (Op. 64 no. 1)
Time Period: Romantic
This famous waltz is NOT playable in one minute, though it is fairly brief! The legend is that a visitor challenged Chopin to write a song about Chopin's little dog, which was at that moment chasing its tail! Perhaps Chopin started improvising then & there, & then developed the full piece, later on.
