Ethan has fun with the music of Frederic Francois Chopin. He plays some hit songs of yore that were based on Chopin's melodies, and of course, Ethan makes his own hot Chopin arrangements as well, including a romping C# Minor Waltz and a Prelude played in the styles of Scott Joplin and Jelly Roll Morton. Finally he ends the show with Joseph Lamb's Ragtime Nightingale, which drew inspiration from the Revolutionary Etude.
