    I like his fourth Ballade most. Just perfect.
    Same here! Followed by his scherzi, mazurkas, and of course the concerti.

    I also like the 2nd Sonata very much (and the 3rd too) especially the Funeral March.

    Ballades, Scherzos, and two great stand alone pieces he composed: polonaise fantasie, and the barcarolle.

    Though I'm not a real Chopin fanatic, I that the c#minor Scherzo and the f#minor Polonaise are incredibly well concieved and written. They're absolute masterpieces of piano music IMO.

    Hands down the third and fourth ballades. The third is such a noble polish dance and the fourth is one of the most lyrical pieces in the repertoire, it's hard not to love them, in my opinion.

    ^ Good one

    My favourite at the moment is Polonaise in A-flat major, op.53.
    And now for something completely different.

    "At the moment" my fave is Piano Trio since it's one of his few pieces that doesn't sound hackneyed after 2010 Chopin Year + it's marvelous chamber piece anyway.

    Really I like 'em all; favourites include the Nocturnes, Waltzes, and especially the four Impromptus--all preferably performed by Claudio Arrau.
