Frédéric Chopin (March 1, 1810 – October 17, 1849) is regarded as one the greatest Polish composers and one of the very finest composers for the piano. A major figure in nineteenth-centry classical music and the Romantic Period, Chopin was one of a very small group of child prodigies, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Felix Mendelssohn.

Chopin composed his first polonaise at the age of seven, and he greatly developed the style over the course of his creative career. As in the case of the nocturnes, Chopin perfected an existing form. Among the best known polonaises are the "Military" Polonaise in A, Op. 40, No. 1, and the "Heroic" or "Drum" Polonaise in A♭, Op. 53 - both are included in this app.

The polonaise is a processional dance in triple time, the hallmark rhythm of which comprises an eighth note and two sixteenths, followed by four eighth notes. Liszt felt that “this dance is designed above all to draw attention to the men and to gain admiration for their beauty, their fine arts, their martial and courteous appearance.”

For Chopin, however, these compositions are the finest expression of his nostalgic grief with respect to the struggles of his homeland. Chopin composed nine polonaises before leaving Poland. It is only later, in France, that his genius matured. “His seven later examples are thrilling in their splendour, rancour, and instrumental invention.”
