    Chopin's MAZURKAS is a quintessence of Polish National (folk(?)) music.

    Second scherzo - Fun!

    Berceuse. I like it more for it's versatility. You can play this anywhere, from library to restaurant to competition.

    Ah you want me to pick just ONE? lol. where do I begin? I love his fantasie impromtu (dont knwo the number??), if for no other reason than its really really fast. My family is part Polish, and my piano teacher thinks that people of Polish decent have some weird connection with Chopin. and I believe him . so of course the Mazurkas are great also.

    I heart Chopin!!

    Have any of you heard the Nocturne Posthumous? It's a cracking peice! I've just finished learning it. I also like Chopin's Grande Valse Brilliante. I've just started on that.

    Wow... I'd have to say the piano concerto no. 2 in F minor. And especially the final movement. That final movement just proves how much of a genius Chopin really was.

    Much as I love the pieces I've heard by Chopin, the thing that would please me most would be being able to hear him improvise, everything I've ever read about him said he was an extremely gifted improvisor.

    Default My choice : Etude op.10 no.1

    Chopin's first etude, because its wide compass and serenade-like expression delight me.

    I really enjoy performing the first Ballade.. it is so 'excited' for me..
    I like also the second piano concerto, the E dur etude - op. 10, No. 3 ...and so many works from Chopin, of course, but these are my favourites
