Mazurka in B flat minor, Op 24 No 4

1833; published in 1836

When teaching the Mazurka in B flat minor, Op 24 No 4, composed in 1833, Chopin offered very specific advice on the timbre of the third section (bars 54-62) where the opening unison (‘women’s voices in the choir’) is answered by chords (‘a [full] mixed choir’) and demanded absolute sound control or, as Chopin’s student Wilhelm von Lenz put it: ‘One was barely allowed to breathe over the keyboard, let alone touch it!’
