Frederic Chopin: Fantaisie Impromptu Op. 66

Frederic Chopin, Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin, was born on February 22, 1810. He was born in Zelazowa Wola, Poland. Chopin was a huge admirer of Bach. In this way, Chopin composed many great works that are still remembered today. One of his most famous was Fantaisie Impromptu Op. 66 (theodyssey). Critics say, "look how it has been adored by classical musicians till now. It is a very demanding piece" (theodyssey). The song uses many cross-rhythms and ceaselessly moving note figurations. The song opens in allegro agitato but the tempo changed to largo. After changing many times the piece finally returns back to its normal tempo (theodyssey). It ends in a fantasy-like and mysterious way. This piece is a reflection of a romanticism work. When the piece was written Chopin was just 24 years old.
