Introductory image for "Fantaisie-Impromptu" sequence

Fantaisie-Impromptu (Op. 66 Posth. in C-sharp minor) is a piano piece composed by Frederic Chopin.


"Fantaisie-Impromptu" is presented in-game at the very end of the events of Chapter 3. It is explained that it was composed in 1835, but Chopin had never intended to publish it and possibly even asked his friend, Julian Fontana, to burn it after his death, due to its apparent resemblance to Ludwig Van Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Fontana, however, published the piece six years after Chopin's death, despite his request, after wrestling with the difficult decision. As such, today we are now "able to immerse ourselves in this wonderful world of fantasy".

Real WorldEdit

  • As stated by the game, Fontana was indeed asked to destroy the piece, but refrained. It may have been Fontana himself who added the word "Fantaisie" to the title of the piece. The melody of the piece was used in the song "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows." [1]
