Elegiac Mazurka
Arthur Benjamin, Australian-born and British-trained, was living in Vancouver at the beginning of World War II. He had been one of Britten’s teachers at the Royal College of Music in London. His Elegiac Mazurka is dominated by this dance’s trademark dotted rhythm, which is used with dramatic effect.
