Description

Chopin wrote the majestic and heroic Polonaise Op.40, No.1 in 1838.  Originally in A major for solo piano it is often known as the Military Polonaise.  The piece’s nationalistic qualities lead to it being broadcast daily on Polish radio during the German invasion of the country at the outset of WWII.  Bombastic good fun for four bassoons!
