Favourite Chopin Work?

Chopin wrote SOO much great music, and I’m thinking that most of us have a favourite that we love above all the others. Pick 1 only.

For me it’s the Polonaise-Fantasy Op. 61.

I agree, polonaise-fantasie. Played by Kapell, although there are a lot of other great versions out there.

Not sure if the opus number counts, but if it does.

Definitely Op.28.

It’s more than perfect. It’s everything.

ma fav iz da 28/24 unlezz i iz allowd 2 pick da whole op lyk da krittah

I think that it works the best as a set. But I’m randomly sick of it at the moment.

The Polonaise Fantasie is great…how can people hate it?

If I had to chose only one piece than it would probably be the 3rd Sonata. But it’s an impossible choice.

Hard to say, but probably op. 28. I sortof have a love/hate relationship with Chopin, but I’d listen to his preludes anyday.

3rd zhitzo iz mah fav :gav:

im liztenin to WEIZZ playin chop2 itz gud :orgy:

Favorite Chopin work? Any of them.

But seriously, probably Op.25/12.

Although it’s over-played, g-minor ballade would be my choice…

though over-played, it’s rarely well performed

Op. 22 (solo)

I used to think so too, but then I listened to it more and now I love it. Same deal with the F minor fantasie.

haha, yeah that’s true, esp. today… but thanks God, almost every great pianist played that so it’s always interesting to discover some new things…

prolly either da f minor fantasy or da f minor ballade

F minor Ballade
Preludes (set) inc. op 45 prelude
Sonata no 3

Pick 1 only.

Op. 52

Of the things mentioned, I haven’t yet developed an appreciation of:

3rd Sonata
Op. 49
Op. 60
Op. 61
Either Concerto

Time will tell.
