This Mazurka, in E flat minor, is the last of the opus 6 mazurkas composed by Chopin. It appears to be a memory of a lyric Kujawiak instead of a real piece of dance. Chopin gave this Mazurka a quick tempo – presto ma non troppo – quick but not too quick. A lot of pianists play it very quickly, although I think that the correct tempo is the melody of a nostalgic kujawiak, quick but not too quick, according to professor Mieczysław Tomaszewski.
Thank you and good listening!
