Title: Polonaise 'Heroique', Op. 53
The Polonaise in Ab major, Op. 53, nicknamed Heroique, is a work for piano written by Chopin in 1842 and dedicated to Auguste Léo. This is one of his most admired works and has long been a favorite of the classical piano repertoire. It requires exceptional piano skills and great virtuosity to be interpreted at a high degree of proficiency. Marked Alla polacca e maestoso (like a polonaise and majestic) it uses a form intermediate between ternary and rondo. A typical performance lasts seven minutes. The Heroique nickname seems to have originated with Chopin's companion, George Sand, who suggested that the piece be a symbol of the 1848 Revolution because of its heroic character.
