Fauré’s solitary Mazurka (c1875) is an early, idiosyncratic tribute to Chopin. The Trio is notably appealing, the nostalgic, over-the-shoulder glance at a revered master charming. But it is significant that, unlike Chopin who wrote fifty-eight Mazurkas, Fauré never repeated the experiment.

La Mazurka solitaire de Fauré (c1875) est un premier hommage caractéristique à Chopin. Le Trio est remarquablement émouvant, le charmant regard nostalgique jeté en arrière sur un maître vénéré. Mais, de façon significative, contrairement à Chopin qui écrivit cinquante-huit Mazurkas, Fauré ne répéta jamais l’expérience.

Faurés einzige Mazurka (c1875) ist ein früher, ureigener Tribut an Chopin. Das auffallend ansprechende Trio wirkt wie ein sehnsüchtiger Blick über die Schulter, zu einem verehrten Meister hin. Aber es ist bezeichnend, daß Fauré, im Gegensatz zu Chopin, welcher achtundfünfzig Mazurkas schrieb, dieses Experiment niemals wiederholte.
