Email me off-list about this if you want to discuss this point further
but no matter what angle you look at this piece, there is just no way
it is not minimalistic.

Not for that particular piece. In general, nowadays, Chopin's harmony
is considered to be in the Common Practice Period and are well
understood by second-semester harmony students. It is not simple, but
certainly not complex. Chopin's harmony to a music student is like a
heap to a programmer. (obviously this is just a way of saying)
