Eugène Ysaÿe’s original compositions are not many in number, and by no means all of them are for violin, but in his work-list may be found two Mazurkas, Opus 10, written circa 1893, which were published in Moscow. The second of these, in A minor, may relate more to the styles of Wieniawski and Vieuxtemps, as has been claimed, but in the A minor Mazurka, marked Moderato, we find a flowing, not so simple theme, dolce, which veers hauntingly between A minor and D minor, the triplet in the fifth bar of the violin part adding a subtle and telling variant.
