Frédéric Chopin (March 1, 1810 - October 17, 1849) was a Polish composer, pianist and music teacher. His entire work involves the piano and is technically demanding. He is best known for his "Études" and "Marche Funèbre" (Funeral March).

Zappa quoted from the "Marche Funèbre" in Rhymin' Man, Yo Cats and Why Don't You Like Me?. During the Wonderful Wino version on the BTB album At The Circus (1992) the composition was quoted again.

In The Frank Zappa Interview Picture Disk, pt.2 Zappa mentioned he liked Chopin.
