This piece was not just the last of the 3 Ecossaises Chopin made up in 1826 however his extremely last effort in this dance kind genre. He had actually currently composed a number of polonaises and mazurkas, and would quickly make up much more, along with end up various waltzes and other dances. The sixteen-year-old Chopin was apparently taken by the fashions of his time: the ecossaise, having roots in England and France, ended up being quite popular in French ballrooms and in other places in Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Like the other 2 Ecossaises, this piece lasts less than a minute. Its primary style is sprightly and slightly naughty in its playfulness. The structure of the piece is quite simple: the dance tune is played twice, followed by a 2nd idea, also provided twice; then all the material exists in the same style once more. While this sort of musical plan is modest and barely ingenious, it serves the piece well enough, using thematic beauty and brilliant colors. This miniature is most likely partially superior to the Ecossaise No. 2, which may sound a bit monotonous.
