This breathtaking 2 piano arrangement includes some of Chopin’s most beloved melodies: Heroic Polonaise in A-flat major, Nocturne in E-flat Major, Waltz in E Minor & Tristesse Etude in E Major Op. 10. The medley begins with the powerful Heroic Polonaise in A-flat major, which incorporates big chords and fast technical passages.  The next piece is the Nocturne in E-flat Major, which Chopin composed when he was in his early twenties.  It has a beautiful melody that most people recognize.  The nocturne resolves into the exciting Waltz in E Minor.  Chopin composed this waltz at the age of 20 just before he left for Poland.  After the waltz is the Etude in E Major, Op. 10.  This Etude is also known as the “Tristesse Etude” or “Farewell Etude.”   It has a gorgeous melody that Chopin, himself, thought was one of his most beautiful melodies.  The medley has an exciting ending with a recap of the Waltz in E Minor.
