Mazurka elegiaca, Op 23 No 2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Benjamin Britten misunderstood the commission and composed a work, entitled Mazurka elegiaca, scored for two pianos, instead of writing one for solo piano. Thus although it was intended for the volume it had to be published separately. Britten captures the melancholy characteristic of so many of Chopin’s mazurkas, thereby saluting Paderewski as the great Chopin interpreter.
