Well i cant put them all at #1.

But preludes and nocturnes are about equal and i meant to put mazurka's above polonaise.

preludes and mazurkas tied
and 'other' things like the Barcarolle. Ballades are still up there too.

Waltzes? what was i thinking?! :shock:
The 2 concerti are my favourites now. I'm sick of the Etudes; listened to waaaay too many sets.

Heh, same here. Lately the Mazurkas have been my favorite, but almost all the sets have had their turn(s) as my favorites : Ballades, Scherzi, Waltzes, Etudes, Concerti, Preludes, Impromptus, Polonaises and even Rondi! Haha, I wonder what's next. But of course, I've discovered many different composers in detail as well, which has slowed down my Chopin discoveries somewhat (though there's not all that much left to discover).

The Ballades are four of the greatest achievements for piano ever. I get a different favorite everyday!

HELLO I AM A NEW MEMBER, NOT A MUSICIAN, MY FAVORITE TYPE OF CHOPIN,S MUSIC IS PRECISELY THE ONE I AM LISTENING IN THAT MOMENT. A VERY SPECIAL AND UNDESCRIBABLE FEELING FOR ME IS WITH SCHERZO NO.2 MI BEMOL, FROM THE FIRST TIME I HEARD IT A LITTLE GIRL 6 YEARS OLD, NOW QUITE OLD, IT STILL HAS THE SAME, OR MAYBE LARGER EFFECT.
