Nicholaus Bisma Setra • Sep 13, 2013 I prefer Heroic Polonaise and Nocturne in B flat Minor op.9 no.1. Comments [user=3333]BarryP[/user] Chopin's Ballade in G minor Opus 23 (#1) is a great piece. It probably is one of the top 10 piano pieces ever written. [user=95301]sacredbolero[/user] His first impromptu Op. 29 and his posthomous g-sharp minor polonaise is what i adore, fantaisie-impromptu and his c-sharp minor nocturne also considerable. I dont know their opus numbers. I've played Op. 29, Op. 68 No. 2, polonaise in g minor. [user=75806]Nicholaus Bisma Setra[/user] Actually, I like many Chopin pieces, in addition to those I mentioned. [user=71607]piano1mn[/user] Um, I'd think the 2nd Piano Concerto, Movements 1 and 2.I haven't heard the 3rd movement yet. [user=71607]piano1mn[/user] And that thing for piano and orchestra based on a Mozart aria. [user=36255]21st ccentury boy[/user] Favorite(s) .gminor ballade comes to mind 1st.Slow movement of f minor concerto.op.22 andante spianato and grade Polonaise.aminor mazurka.several of them allow me to live in this worls.f major and dminor preludes op.28 no.23 and 24 but the aflat it might be dflat prelude which Lhevinne recored in the 1920's is one of the most beautiful things he ever penned.Middle section of 3rd scherzo,middle Bmaj. section of the octave etude when played by a truly sensitive pianist makes me feel like there is no other musiceflat minor etude may be jazz's first introduction in our world and it along with no. 3 are 2 of the most beautiful etudes if #24 in cminor isn't.Its impossible every strong piece has a tender neighbor in his sets.and the slow movement of the bminor sonata would charm a dead man.I only got to know his last music the cello sonata late in life and it might be the truly greatest cello piece before Brahms 2 sonatas .Chopin was a master at everything he touched.I haven't heard the soprano songs enough for them to leace an imprint.La ci darem la mano is "that thing based on a Mozart aria its too fluff for me Krakowiak is much finer as is that other piano with orchestra thing in F.

[user=36255]21st ccentury boy[/user] Slow3rdmov of 3rd bminor Sonata. It's the finale I need to learn it is grand triumphal Chopin ! .1st ballade . Bararolle!!!Berceuse1st scherzo and 3and 4th scherzi.Dflat nocturne t opus post. c# minor Nocturne . The op.10 no1 6 ,11 etudes ! make the world a finer place . I would not want to be on an earth without Bach , Scarlatti,HandelBeethoven ,Schumann ,Chopin ,Ravel .Liszt Puccini, Strauss,Boulez Varese . Liszt was closer to Beethoven in that he pushed things forward .He obviously taught Wagner something and he helped so many ! Chopin was not a nice person at all and pretentius and a dandy and a he must have been a hippoctate because he didn't like or follow Beethoven's genius yet he himself is always wining and complaining beautifully .His talent was that he was mostly sane . Strange that a great genius like Schumann wrote such healthy music but ended up and was always latently neurotic .
