In Chopin's varied output the mazurka is, as it happens, the most abundantly represented genre. Collectively, his mazurkas afford a comprehensive record of the composer's development - from the earliest teenage specimens to (it was long held) literally his dying effort. In this chosen form Chopin permitted himself intimacies and fancies, eccentricities and extravagances not encountered to the same degree in his other works. Unlike other "nationalist" composers Chopin almost never employed existing popular materials directly, and evidently was not disposed to collect, catalogue or arrange such materials. Arriving in Paris at twenty-one, Chopin would - over the next eighteen years - create a world of mazurkas in a laboratory far from his, and their, native land. He had carried within himself all the necessary equipment - a perfect grasp of their language and structure - and an instinct to explore new possibilities of drama and design. - ©Andrew Rangell
