    Favorite work? He Barcarolle that he wrote about 3 years before end of his life. He was broadening in his of "space" in sound, with more of an overall expanded sense of time, and I find a similar expansive sense of time and space in his fantastic Fantasie in Fm.

    Apologies for the typos in my recent post. What's with the inability to edit posts after the fact? And no preview window was available, only Post Quick Reply. Post was meant to read:

    Frédéric Chopin's Rondo à la Krakowiak in F major, Op. 14 is a composition for piano and orchestra. It was written in 1828 and dedicated to Princess Anna Zofia .

    A stunner.

    The one that immediately sprang to mind was the 1st Ballade.

    The same for me. I know the first ballad was also Chopin's favorite work.

    But the scherzos are for me also successful pieces and should not be disregarded, especially in the personal astounding impassioned but rigorous performance of Ivo Pogorelich.

    I probably have a few favorites; but the Raindrop Prelude really sticks in my head
