    Souvenir de Moscou is a splendid example of the instrumental virtuoso miniature, which constituted a permanent entry of Henryk Wieniawski's concert programmes. in the composition, Wieniawski used two romances by Alexander Varlamov, the Russian author of numerous songs and romances. Wieniawski employed the _souvenir_ model, the immensely popular element of the salon repertoire. The composition has the form of a theme with variations presented in an abridged and simplified version. Both themes are first sung in the original form, and then developed in variations.
