For my next "greatest" poll how about your favorite Chopin works (5 or fewer)? My choices are the following: Sonata in b flat minor, Sonata in b minor, Barcarolle, and the fourth Ballade. Cast your vote!

Those works, while nice, are pallid in comparison to these pieces by Chopin's hand, masterworks of the romantic piano literature:

1. Nocturne in g minor, op. 15 no. 3
2. Funeral March in c minor, op. 72 no. 2
3. Tarantella in A-flat, op. 43
4. Waltz in E-flat (posth)
5. Ecossaise in G, op. 72 no. 4

Opus 72, as you can see, was a varitable textbook on the adaptability of the romantic character piece.
