Nice to know that's the only reason people care whether I'm here or not.

Poly,
At least your absence is noticed by many. Not sure if anyone notices if I disappear. Hope to get to know you better through the on-line recital and other posts. I'm so looking forward to hearing everyone's work. It is a great idea. Thanks

What is the reason for the low interest of the remaining posthumous Mazurkas? Are they boring? Technically difficult? Or perhaps the problem is that it is difficult to get hold of the sheet music like in my case (I’m an oldie and therefore I’m excused, but I have the impression that many forum participants are capable of finding everything on the web).

Anyhow I was able to spot two of these pieces. One is K IVb No.4 in Ab-Major. This piece gives some training for the outer fingers of the right hand, but not awfully demanding technically. Musically perhaps not the most interesting, but it has its own charm.

The second one I found was one in C-major. I’m not 100% sure that this is K IVb No.3. In the score is written (German) “Band XIII No.8” (Composed 1838 and published in 1880). This piece sounds more like a typical Chopin Mazurka than the one in Ab-Major. Unfortunately the left hand has some repeated chords spanning a major tenth interval, and therefore it is out of question for me. Anyhow, somebody should play it.

*Fine* laugh Um...if nobody objects, I'll take the Ab Major, provided the insistence that if anyone else wants it they can have it (me and majors don't mix so well... laugh )

Whew. OK, I was going through the first couple of pages and had a bit of a panic.

I have a business trip Dec 11-13, so I'll probably need to get it done by then unless I can find somewhere to record it in Las Vegas.

Is it too late to join?

I was thinking of attempting KK IIb No 4 in A minor - which I think I also listed as B. 134 - is that right?

Does anyone have a general recommendation for fingering? I've got a couple of editions fingered by Rafael Joseffy. Is there anyone who's considered to do a better job of it?

Not sure about published editions (there are much better people in here than me for that sort of information). But if you have a passage you want me to take a look at, I can help that way. smile

For the most part there's nothing too suprising but now and again I see something weird which may or may not have an underlying logic not immediately apparent (to me!).

I've been a bit slow to get a start on these so when I'm more stuck in I'll pick out one or two things and perhaps you could see what you think?

Well, sometimes with fingering you just do what makes sense to you. Other times, you do encounter something that seems rather pointless until you get it up to tempo! Of course, by then it's harder to change the fingering. So feel free to ask questions about weird fingerings early on before it makes an issue for you. smile

Sometimes you utilize your fingers in dynamic fashion (almost guessing at the note aimed for, your arm moves lol) other times, your hand is static almost. . . without which, you would play more than one key!

Wi this Chopin piece I`m doing, I have to keep my arm and hand carefully positioned to obtain a clear sound, at speed. And I get a wave of heat expelling from my person; eek I think my brain`s working too hard. But I love it!

Don`t stand too close to me. . . blush

I remembered that I had a big hardcover Cyril Lemoine edition of the Chopin Mazurkas, looked through it and it has all of the Mazurkas.. even the ones that are still in the public domain because they were first published in the 20th century. I remember playing them before, but at a time when I didn't have that book, so I'm guessing my old Alfred that I threw away also had them.

I wonder sometimes why the composer did not publish those ph ones. Did he not like it? They are beautiful too. Did he not have enough time and energy to publish because he was dying? Or did he misplace them?


1) Bach c minor fantasy
2) Morzart Rondo in A minor, K511
3) Schubert Impromptu A flat D935 No2
4) Scriabin op11 prelude #2 and #14 (Re do #2, new #14)
5) kabalevsky Variations in A minor OP 40-2

There is a gap in sophistication and polish between the published and unpublished Mazurkas, and other works for that matter. They are pretty, but they don't have the same substance and impact. Consider the Fantasie-Impromptu - I wouldn't want to delete it from the repertoire, for sure, but neither would I include it in a serious concert unless I was playing the three published ones as well.
