This Mazurka is in B flat major, Szulc wrote that ‘it has hired the length and breadth of Poland. This mazurka is similar in character to the ‘drinking song’ titled ‘Hulanka’. This Mazurka has the form of a rondo. The refrain, of unconventional design, thrusts its way upwards, swinging and swaggering, before falling back down in a delicate scherzando. The first of the two episodes, the one in F major, is a kujawiak. The second episode makes us wonder at its mysterious otherness, according to professor Mieczysław Tomaszewski.
