the Famous Chopin Piano Works. Out of a giant oeuvre of solo piano literature, how difficult it must be to select one album's worth of the most "famous" to be a representative sample. While this album does an adequate job of covering most of the styles in which Chopin composed, there's definitely a notable form absent: the waltz. The performances on the CD are as adequate as the program selection: nothing egregiously poor, but also nothing truly exceptional, making this album useful primarily for a listener seeking a very cursory introduction to Chopin
Chopin: Famous Piano Works, an album by Frédéric Chopin, Vladimir Bunin, Pavlos Hatzopoulos on this site. Piano Sonata No. 2 in B-Flat Minor, Op. 35 "Funeral March": III. Marche funebre: Lento. 11. 35 "Funeral March": IV. Finale: Presto. More by Frédéric Chopin.
Most of Chopin's compositions were for solo piano, although he did compose two piano concertos (his concertos No. 1 and No. 2 are two of the romantic piano concerto repertoire's most often-performed pieces) as well as some other music for ensembles.

Frédéric François Chopin (1810 – 1849) was a famous Polish composer of the Romantic era. He was born with a polish name Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin and only later became a French citizen, since Poland was occupied by the Russians. He was a child prodigy and his piano technique was unparallelled among his contemporaries. His compositions draw from both Vienna classics and Polish folklore.
Frédéric Chopin wrote some of the most famous piano music ever, but where should you start? Our handy guide will show you what to listen out for and what to go for next. Chopin and the piano go together like peas in a pod. But where do you start with the composer who not only wrote the most famous piano music of all time, but wrote so darn much of it? Well, perhaps it's best to divide the works up. He wrote over 230 pieces for the piano, ranging from solo etudes, polonaises and nocturnes to full-on concertos, so let's take it one section at a time.
