The Polish Music Information Center has provided the following list of compositions that are pre-1956 and usually associated with André's membership in the Polish Composers' Union. In the left panel are images of two fragments that survived: a Nocturne (1948) that Andrzej marked, Opus 1, Number 1, and dedicated to his grandmother Celina: and then one of his (12) Etudes that he wrote to develop certain aspects of his piano technique. The location of the manuscripts of the other compositions are unknown.

Nocturne (1948) [Dedicated to his grandmother as Opus 1 No. 1]
Etude (1949)
Introduction et scherzo de la sonata en mi mineur (1949)
Variations sur le Prélude de Chopin en do mineur (1949)
Six Fantaisies (1949)
Ten Etudes for piano (1949)
Sonata in G-major for Piano (1949)
Prelude, Cavatina, Waltz, and Lullaby for piano (1950)
Violin Concerto (1950)
Concerto for Flute and Orchestra (1950)
Variations on a Theme of Cohen for piano (1950)
Prelude and Fugue for piano (1953) [won a prize]
Two Preludes for piano (1954)
Two Etudes for piano (1955)
Song for soprano and piano (1955)

The exception to the list above is a Symphony (1958), but there is no known manuscript and if this did exist, it may have been destroyed after André moved from Paris to London in the early 1960s. This is because André told his Aunt Mala in Paris to destroy the large box he left behind and Mala's son, Charles Fortier, reported that Aunt Mala did, indeed, throw the box into the trash. According to friends, André felt that his compositions from 1957 and 1958 were overly influenced by his studies with Nadia Boulanger at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau and did not express his true compositional voice.
