I recently dug out a piece I haven't played in 25 years (I play the piano) and started practising it - unfortunately I could play it a lot better when I was 21 :( and looked up a few facts about it on Wiki.

It was the last piece of music played on Polish radio before the radio station was occupied by the Germans in WW2.
It was composed at the time of the 1831 November uprising against Russia which explains the name by which it is known.
It is the twelth and last in a collection of works by this composer.
It is the single most played piece by "expert but non-concert standard pianists" in recitals.
It's knackering to play even though only around 2 minutes long (this didn't come from Wiki)
So what is the popular title?

Probably something by Chopin. I'll keep thinking

Was it the Minute Waltz?

No - but composer is correct on both counts. It's probably not quite as well known as the Minute Waltz but not far behind (and not a waltz)..

Fantasy (spelling) impromptu?

Not a waltz or impromptu (although Fantasy Impromptu is another of my favourite pieces). The clue to the popular name is really in the 1831 uprising...

I can't name it, but would guess it pertains to the Revolution?

I'll definitely have to give you that one TS, it's the Revolutionary Etude by Chopin.
