Chopin Mazurka in A Minor op 59 No 1
on: April 03, 2007, 10:41:55 AM
I have just started learning this for my Performer's Certificate at Trinity this year.

It is quite unlike any other Chopin (including Mazurkas) that I have learned; the extemporary style (though extremely beautiful) is not something that's easy to "programme" into my brain.

Has anyone else learned this piece or have any insight into it?
