Mazurka No 2 in C sharp minor
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Balakirev’s mazurkas are a good deal more demonstrative than any of Chopin’s. No 1 in A flat major (from the end of the 1850s), establishes a characteristic pattern for Balakirev in its trajectory from modest, folk-like beginnings to a fiery coda. No 2 in C sharp minor (c1860) is less developed, but still chunkily scored in its concluding repeated section.
