“Poet of the piano" Frederick Chopin, regarded as an outstanding representative of romantic music, has made great contributions to romantic music. There was an article commentary, "the contribution that Chopin made to the piano is as much as what Schubert made to singing."Consequently, Chopin plays a decisive role in the history of Western piano music. Chopin composed a total of three sonatas and Piano Sonata No.2 in b flat minor, Op.35 is the most popular one of them. The second movement is SCHERZO, Chopin's scherzo is different from general genres, it is not purely frolic and playful, but contains a wealth of profound ideas. It is not a careless move that Chopin arranges the scherzo as the second movement of this sonata, but has great significance.
