The Polonaise in F-sharp minor, Op. 44, is a piece for solo piano written by Frédéric Chopin in 1841. It is often referred to as the "tragic" polonaise.[1] The polonaise is dedicated to Princess Ludmilla de Beauveau, a prominent member of the Polish émigré community in Paris.[2]

Despite its title, the polonaise is a composite work in ternary form, with a central mazurka section in A major. A typical performance of the polonaise lasts around eleven minutes.[2]
