Frédéric Chopin's Fantaisie in F minor, Op. 49, is a single-movement work for the piano, composed in 1841, when he was 31 years old.[1]


This work belongs to the Fantasy form, a composition free in form and inspiration.[2] From Chopin's letters it is known that he used the name "fantasy" to show some sort of freedom from rules and give a Romantic expression.[1] Frédéric Chopin continued the tradition of a self-contained movement in his Fantaisie.[2]
