Mazurka in B major, Op 41 No 2

1840; published by Breitkopf & Härtel as Op 41 No 3; dedicated to Stefan Witwicki

About the B major Mazurka, Op 41 No 2 (1840), Chopin is supposed to have told Wilhelm von Lenz that the piece opens with a chorus of guitars, and that it is difficult to render because the groups of dancers represented in it change directions every few bars.

À propos de la Mazurka en si majeur, op. 41 nº 2 (1840), Chopin aurait dit à Wilhelm von Lenz que le morceau commençait par un chœur de guitares, ce qui était difficile à rendre car les groupes de danseurs représentés dans cette musique changeaient de direction toutes les deux ou trois mesures.

Über die H-Dur-Mazurka, op. 41 Nr. 2 (1840), sagte Chopin offenbar Wilhelm von Lenz gegenüber, dass das Stück mit einem Gitarrenchor beginne, und dass es schwierig sei, es wiederzugeben, da die darin dargestellten Tänzer-Gruppen alle paar Takte die Richtung wechselten.
