Solo Repertoire – Tiffany Poon
This is undoubtedly the best piano piece ever composed. Surely it is the most beautiful of all the etudes. I am currently playing it at the moment and I find it more and more passionate and enchanting every time I play it. I'm surprised it has received so little votes for its passion and beauty never cease to take my breath away. It carries you to another world, world of pure and passionate music. Just close your eyes while playing it and you will understand why I voted for this piece. It is even more beautiful than that of op. Other pieces get votes here because they're popular, but I vote here due to unparalleled beauty.
Beautiful thirds" - Adrian Saari Etude Op. It touches the soul, so deeply and so melancholic through the beautiful theme and the powerful climax of the cadence in e flat chords in the right hand and in the scale in the left hand, and seems it doesn't end at the last bars, it lefts u involved with an atmosphere of a regret or a feeling without name, unexplainable. A piece, which is, concealed its beauties. I never play this piece and rarely listen to any performance because I believe this song is too pure to be performed by anybody.
Nice melody. When it is played quick to tempo it is totally awesome to watch someone play! Y "Because it is very nice Etude and I play it. In my idea that is very elegant. The beginning sounds like the calm tranquil call of the army; then its choral echo; Suddenly the theme repeats again left hand with fury and a dissonant howl accompanies it right hand, it's quite difficult to play Finally, the tragic closing chords, followed by a blood-steeped scale: one of the few times Chopin has used a plain scale Then, I can't stop loving this Etude.
After loving all 32 of them, I turned to Chopin, where I came across this etude. Simply staggering: I didn't think music of this difficulty could physically exist! The chromatic runs, the sublime arpeggios and the fortissimo coda are simple Chopin at his very best! It is beyond explanation. Very spiritial work, my favorate etude. The room typically falls silent after the first measures.
We can see it as a long improvisation. The harmonies are very mysterious and luminous. All Chopin is contained in this piece. And because it is like a truly romantic story! This is then rushed into the incredible heroic-love chant of utmost passion and affection, After this it changes into some mighty war song with oracular octaves in contrary motion and then the love-chant in A-flat resounded but slightly lower and then a quiet relaxed section where Chopin's soul seemed to find momentary rest, but then The A-flat part is played again this slightly higher than the last times and this time the music just releases all of the emotions contained with in it at once.
Anger, rage, sadness but above all love. The octaves in contrary motion are then resounded and then the piece ends with an appealing cadenza. The music itself is stunning to hear, and the overall enjoyment in playing this piece is greatly satisfying. This is definitely one of my favorite pieces. It is my favorite piano piece of all time. It is played with speed and the beauty that comes out is indescribable" -Aaron Wiens "A wonderful piece!
Very quick and sensitive. When I hear it it sends shivers up my spine. I should say that this piece does deserve some credit as far as popularity is concerned. It is quite a challenging piece to a certain extent that it has a four-against-three method. But I will agree that the middle theme is very lyrical and expressive.
Yes, two thumbs up and three cheers for the Fantasy-Impromptu!

There isn't another one as beautiful as this. The middle part is in a major key but it's still sad. I love that. And the first and third part are just superb. The music is touching your ears like a waterfall of sounds, just keep on coming The beginning is breath-taking -- the speed, the melody, etc. As a pianist, I've played and lived this emotional outpour so many times. Unlike some pieces where repeated performances and interpretations tend to disenchant the listener, the fantasie-impromptu never fails to evoke longing, uncertainty, and passion with its delicate fast section and its aching slow lyrical section.
I love this piece, because of the complexity of it, and the speed and how it can be so full of notes yet still so expressive--the middle section is especially beautiful" — Julie "It is so emotionally dramatic. Everything about it is wonderful. When first hearing the piece, I listened with interest when the song started because it has a haunting sound to it. When getting to the middle part, everything starts to sound cheerful with the beautiful melody. Then the song goes back to it's haunting first part again! I love it and have played it for six months! Also, I like it because the left and right hand do not play exactly together.
Even though it makes the song hard, it makes it more interesting! This piece speaks to my soul as if it knows the turmoil inside. The piece represents the virtuosity and intensity of Chopin's music with an unforgettable melody. W "I am currently playing it, and I almost can't stop myself from practicing. It has everything it's crazy fast and then fluid slow, and the melodies are enchanting. It is simply put, beautiful" - Keith Hsiueh "I feel relaxing when listening to this.
And I think that it sounds really beautiful. And the work is so dramatic and flawless. I love the change in dynamic - The change in tone throughout Fantasie-Impromptu gives it shape and dimension. It is a true delight to play. Gorgeous cross-rhythms and a ceaselessly moving note figuration. Great awe and delight, thus making Chopin the incontrovertible master of the piano. It sounds really difficult. I would like to get the whole sheet music.
It gave me a lot of motivation when i practice the piano. I love the A section coz it's so passionate and I wouldn't say frantic, but it's fast! And the middle section is a bit lengthy hey I'm a 21st century chic but it's still really pretty. Then it goes back to the A section with a hella wicked coda Xoxoxo but it was hard to choose a fave coz all of Chopin's songs are gorgeous! Chopin and Mozart and Mike Shinoda are my fave composers!
It's happy and sad, and it might sound "messy" at first, but sometimes, its nice to make the melody "hidden" a little. This is also my first Chopin piece that I learned. It was hard work but it was worth it. It is my third favorite Chopin piece. First one Sonata No. It is a great piece and I am glad I learned it. It's fast paced yet calming I was so excited when I finally learned how to play it. It's so easy to get carried away while playing this song. Absolutely wonderful!
The inner voices are wonderful, with the intense sense of dynamics and buildup. It is possibly the only piece where both musical and non-musical people can understand the sheer skill needed to play the piece. It takes a lot of accuracy to play the song note for note, and even more emotion to give the song more life than notes on a page. A must-play for piano students, and a must-hear for those who aren't as musically inclined. A well-known, yet unique piece that can never be exhausted, no matter how many times it is played.
It takes full advantage of the trill ornament and quick pedaling. It offers a cheerful, addictive melody with great chords in the left hand. I play this piece and it is very rewarding. It is just a relatively simple piece, timed like any other mazurka, and is tuned like a wonderful wedding march! Brilliant, majestic,incomparable as no words can describe this. It is the epitome of a true dance, a true mazurka in itself. Nocturne Op. It sends shivers up my spine every time I hear it. It is tranquil and haunting at the same time.
This piece makes my brain go numb every time I hear it. I can honestly say that it contains the most haunting melody I've ever heard in my life"- Wen "A feeling of sadness, but yet hope as you listen along to the middle of the piece. Really haunting but reassuring at the same time. This is the one nocturne that could make anyone emotional.
That's really all I have to say about it It is so touching to me, in an unexplainable way. I want to listen to it when I am sad, when I am joyous, and if I am busy doing something and I hear it, I must stop what I am doing and just "take it in". He is the poet of the piano, of course! It's difficult to vote for the most favorite Chopin's work, but I would like to vote for Nocturne Op.
It's a lot of time when I listen to her at the midnight, she's so beautiful, make my imagination gone with her! I belive Chopin had angel sitting next to him, when he was composing this piece! It just draws me in. No pressure, the world's hot breath off you neck. It makes you think. It is what wins over audiences! A beautiful piece which acts as balm for a wounded heart. Amazing, Unbelievable, fantastic! Simple yet very powerful. The broken chords in the left and the gentle right make this piece wonderful. But a skillful touch is required! I think it is how it works as a whole which strikes me the most.
The rhythms, melodies and the arrangement dance together so beautifully I could see his emotion rising and falling through the notes. It's very peaceful, and how romantic is it when played by a piano! It was my first attempt to step into Chopin's world of music, just like the author of this site. How incidental is it, I'm 15 now and I am going to finish this piece. It takes a great deal of work and once it's mastered, it unfolds into a beautiful masterpiece.
It is so sad and emotional, yet makes me so happy and the same time. Only Chopin Toward the end of my prom night, I led my crush of three years to this secret place I'd accidentally discovered and played this piece for him on a white grand piano This nocturne has emotions pouring from its golden cup and it will be my favorite song for the eternity. This music is poetry written for dreamers, who are able to enter its own melancholic world and who yearn to be be carried away on its silvery bridge before the first sight of dawn touches the earth and wakes it up.
The dreamy atmosphere that it produces continues to transport me to a world of unexplainable emotion. It gives the notion of a graceful waltz abruptly broken by a heart-wrenching section which quickly takes the listener back to that state of calm. The indelible impression leaves one breathless Sheer brilliance! T "I am not exaggerating when I say this is Chopin's best Nocturne. It is heart- wrenching without the pitiful tones of sentimentality. Its haunting yet peaceful melody and the tension of the middle section will never make my sick of this piece even though I have listened to it a thousand times!
I am attracted to the expressive use of cadence and pauses here. It is like lyrical poetry. I don't have words to describe what I feel, every time I'm listening to it.. I cry. Comforts me on a grey day. I have.. I love the emotional intensity od this piece!! As a small child I remember hearing most all of Chopin's music being played either by her or on the radio, etc. And the only one that stood out to me as a child was the Nocturne in C minor. As a young boy i remember it as being very angry, but now as a young adult having played many of Chopin's pieces in my life I appreciate how truly sad it is, and how reflective it is of Chopin's sadness.
It is one of very few pieces that can bring me to tears. Not only is the "dreamy" mood there, but its climax really inspires me. The "agitato" section really gets the my emotions on "high", which is a really powerful feeling. At times it seems disjointed and prone to despair in its middle section. It is a work of wonderful harmonic grace and delicacy of technique due to its reserve of emotion in its gorgeous melody. I also recommend Chopin's barcarolle, cello sonata, and early "rococo" polonaises. It is one of the few songs that has a special meaning to me.
The song expresses so much and every time I hear it or play it, a different emotion is evoked" - Frazier Wash "I feel that it really speaks about him as a person and I find that it is very easy to relate to. Plus the song is most beautiful. It's astonishing that Chopin could compose a piece of such startling emotional profundity when he was so young! It is what interested me in Chopin when I was a teenager.
About 'Etude Op.25 No.9 in G-flat major : Butterfly'
In fact, it was one of the first Chopin pieces that I played. Achingly beautiful It made me weep the first time that I heard it, and still helps me truly understand the sorrow of Chopin's life. Waltz "I'd played in a recital and loved the emotional impact" - Joseph "This is the first piece that I've ever played by Chopin. When I first heard it on my favorite movie "The Secret Garden" it gave me chills and I wanted to play that song ever since. Then, this piece was only an impressive song. Now, It seems to take a new meaning and makes my emotions run through my fingers.
A very powerful, yet mysterious song that soothes the soul. I felt that he was on the way of journey in the wilderness, mountain top or in the pit of valley, seeking something important to him, but found not.
My vote went to this less known Nocturne. The piece is an example of Chopin's melodic and harmonic genius. The piece gives me chills everytime, particulary the return the theme played in octaves bar The increased embellishments show hints of Chopin's Virtuosity. Pure Genius. As if you feel that you are alone in all this world and Somebody knows your heart and thoughts and understands you, cries with you But, this is the first piece of music of Chopin I had known before I knew all music by Chopin.
I hope, I can play it by piano one day. It really touched my heart. I shed tears the first time I listened to it. It was played by the guy the writer of the book Pianist. Sorry, I can't remember the spelling of his name. The latter is brilliant but never frivolous. I love all Chopin's compositions!!! I'm un architect and pianist amateur Brazilian and I don't speak English very well " - Rui Farias Carneiro "This piece makes me absolutely feel like I am floating in a dream-flowing smoothly-sweetly, yet mysteriously-Hence the name "Andante" — Dori "The Andante Spianato is my all-time favorite Chopin piece, because it's so touching and soulful.
Really, it takes a stony heart not to be captivated by its delicate, warm melody. It's a work of extraordinary beauty and striking simplicity, it makes you wonder at the poetry and sensibility of Chopin's music. He makes the piano sing in an breathtaking way. It grabs one's listening and then, when it doesn't seems to end with the low runs, there is relief and beauty. What was Chopin expressing with it? Makes one feel very little. Chopin: we love you, thank you so much for your heavenly music! Although I am only one-eight Polish, immense feelings sweep through me every time I here this extraordinary epic.
Words are insufficient to describe this masterpiece emotions can only conjure an acceptable interpretation of this polonaise as is the case for all Chopin. When I first listed to this piece, I was moved and shocked. I just started to play the piano at that time, and I think this because of this piece, I've continued to play the piano until today. I love most of his work, but this one is my favorite. I haven't played this one yet, so I'll keep practicing and play this one someday.
