Some masterworks for piano by Frédéric Chopin.

  1. to all you beautiful musicians out there, could you please name the first piece 0:00 - 0:26? exact number, note? thx, dzieki
  2. Chopin Etude Opus 25 No. 12 is not "Ocean". It is "Winter Wind".
  4. I appreciate his fast stuff for its passion and beauty. But what really carries me away is that slow shit.
  5. Chopin definitely up there with the big boys..... One of my better 10 minute segments spent on youtube......If you get the chance to watch the 2 minute clip of Richter playing the "Revolutionary" take it........I swear you can hear the piano saying submit submit....He kills it.
  6. A beautiful day must end (and start with my friends living on the other side of the world) with a beautiful tune! Good night and good morning...
  7. 6.42 look like star war xd
  8. unclear font, I read Etude Op. 25 n. 5 "Wrong Hole" at 5:00. Or maybe it's just me 
  9. Artur Rubinstein
  10. Excellent compilation, dude. You've really found his best pieces.
  11. Who is playing the first piece?
  12. I wasn't mad at you... In fact, I agree with your comment (I'm totally atheist myself). I was simply trying to tell you that had your comment been spelled correctly it might have more effect. Sorry! :(
  13. perfecto
  14. yes, all of those things.
  15. 1 song that is missing from this list is Waltz in A minor (Posthumous), beautiful song by Chopin and 1 of my favourites. Other than that a Great selection
  16. Shame, I was hoping it's the devil's number.
  17. absolutely looooooooooooovely
  18. 4 must-have Chopin works 1. Étude Op. 10 No. 3 (Chopin admitted that it was his most beautiful melody) 2. Ballade No. 4 in F minor 3. Piano Concerto No. 2 Mvt. 2,3 4. Prelude in E minor
  19. @apluspianist Don't forget mazurkas, impromptus, marches, fantasies, rondos, sonatas, the berceuse, bourrees, a canon, a cantabile, a bolero, songs, the tarantella, a barcarolle, and variations.
  20. meraviglioso
  21. lol I am watching this when it has 666 182 views
  22. It's Fryderyk Chopin (he wasn't french but polish)
  23. indubitably:D
  24. By what you have been taught, and to you, I accept that. But 666 is, and I just say clearly again, what I have been taught is 666 has nothing to do with any beast or demonic forces. It is the mark/number of human kind/mankind, or hell, it's just a number. (I'm not really looking for a fight, despite the structure of my comment, nor am I attempting to educate anyone on anything proper. Believe what you want, won't bother me a bit)
  25. This is not the very best, this is only the most famous works. The peak is in his last years: Mazurkas Op.56, Berceuse Op.57, Sonata Op.58, Mazurkas Op.59, Barcarolle Op.60, Polonaise-Fantaisie Op.61 and the most beautiful Nocturnes: The Opus 62. Btw all his music is wonderful. Just a really few works are not so interesting, like Op.2 or Op.4. He was the greatest genius for the piano. God damn it, he died only 39...
