Notes & Reviews:

The Mazurka is one of the classic Polish folk dances which was turned into an art-music form. This fascinating recital by Russian pianist Alexander Kostritsa tracks the evolution of the Mazurka from its simple and short form as composed by Maria Szymanowska (the first to write Mazurkas for piano), through its elevation to art by Chopin and its full Romantic flowering in the hands of Szymanowski.
