Hold on a minute Polish medical experts say that the preserved heart of 19th century composer Frederic Chopin shows signs of tuberculosis and possibly some other lung disease. The findings seem to corroborate Chopin's 1849 death certificate which sa

zrtf90: I think the Mozart D major and the Beethoven 2/3 are probably too hard. It's hard to tell from the short list given, but I have to assume the OP hasn't worked on a first movement of a sonata before if they didn't list it. So good starters for
