My favourite is no.1, I like its "frenzy" style.
The fourth Scherzo does't get ignored, its just not everyone's favourite, but it is still great piece of music.

I hate trying to pick favorites when it comes to Chopin. Yes, #2 is the most popular - I grew up listening to my mom play it - but I don't think that I would call something so good "overplayed" ...I picked #1, but I don't know that I would call it atypically violent for Chopin - he's got a lot of good violent stuff. :) Shall I make a list? Most of it is mixed with delicacy, but so is that Scherzo - the middle of it is absolutely lovely. If I'm forced to rate them in order, I would say 1, 2, 4, 3...but it's soooo close. I love them all. :) I might say 2, 4, 1, 3 tomorrow...I like #3 (of course, it's Chopin!) but I think I will always like the other three more.
"Z Czernym poznałem się na panie brat—na dwa fortepiana często z nim u niego grywałem. Dobry człowiek, ale nic więcej..." - Fryderyk Chopin
