Polonaise in Ab is Superb
The polonaise in Ab is a classic, and one of the most difficult pieces I have ever attempted. It is well worth it, and this edition makes it easy to learn what the composer really wanted from the player.

These are all very wonderful, patriotic pieces. My favorites are the opus 53 Polonaise and the Polonaise-Fantasie. There are highly advanced, tricky passages in these that take lots of patience to master. If you feel you have a great technical level and if you can perform very greatly Chopin's Scherzos and Ballades, then these shouldn't be too tedious. But they are definitely worth all the practice and effort required to play these masterpieces.

What a fun book to play through. Many of us only learned The Military Polonaise, but the other 10 Chopin Polonaises for solo piano offer a bit of a challenge if you've not played them before. Add this book to your library and enjoy them at your leisure.

I enjoyed playing through this set of pieces. My favourite would have to be the A major (Opus 40. No. 1). This is a helpful book for understanding the style of the polonaise. I strongly recommend this series.

I have always loved Chopin's polonaises; they are such passionate, patriotic, and energetic pieces that are fun to hear and play. My favorites are the Heroic polonaise (op.53 no.6), the Military polonaise (op.40 no.1) and the op.26 no.1 one. Great songs, but fairly difficult ones.
