Don't waste your breath on someone who doesn't have a concept of intrinsic value.

A Bechstein boat ! I can think of a great deal of use for those Chopin music books too .So who be the greatest, since the Ballade in G minor has become a bonnet and the Nocturnes have become ,......

Yes because you obviously know exactly what the concept of intrinsic value is, especially when you dismissed Mozart's and Beethoven piano music as not "true".
By the way, I find Beethoven's 32nd Sonata to be much more of an achievement than anything by Chopin. As Brendel said: "...perhaps nowhere else in piano literature does mystical experience feel so immediately close at hand." (also considering this isn't "true" piano music it's a bit strange how Chopin admired it himself so much that he chose to imitate both the beginning and end of the first movement in the opening of his B-flat Minor sonata, and in the end of the Revolutionary etude respectively.)

Thanks NobleHouse! I still think Liszt is criminally underrated as a composer and it's always interesting displaying his more obscure works out of the 1000+ he wrote.

Why decide for 5 Opus when you have most of Chopin works in your head and can just "play it back" there.

I'd probably go for one of lesser known works in order to get to know these better.

My pick:

Concerto no. 1
Scherzo no. 2
Ballade no. 4
Grand Polonaise op.22
Sonata no. 3

Wait.... I don't have the skills to play most of them.
