Music by Frédéric Chopin
Date 1842

"Polonaise in A-flat major" is the 53rd opus by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin.

A rock version of the piece was performed by The Electric Mayhem in The Muppet Show episode 202 when the concert pianist couldn't make it. While Sam the Eagle weeps in frustration, Kermit observes, "Good ol' Chopin. You can't beat the classics. You can only destroy 'em."

On Sesame Street, a more traditional version was performed by Slimey in Episode 1614. Oscar is discouraged by Slimey's flawless playing and recommends a more Grouch-appropriate encore.
