Get it now!" - Jamie Musselwhite Frédéric Chopin (March 1, 1810 - October 17, 1849) is regarded as one the greatest Polish composers and one of the very finest composers for the piano. A major figure in nineteenth-centry classical music and the Romantic Period, Chopin was one of a very small group of child prodigies, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Felix Mendelssohn. The mazurka (in Polish, mazurek) is a Polish folk dance in triple meter, usually at a lively tempo, and with accent on the third or second beat. The folk origins of the mazurek are two other Polish musical formsâ€â€the slow machine kujawiak, and the fast oberek. The mazurek is always found to have either a triplet, trill, dotted eighth note (quaver) pair, or an ordinary eighth note pair before two quarter notes (crotchets). In the 19th century, the dance became popular in many ballrooms in different parts of Europe. The Polish national anthem has a mazurek rhythm but is too slow to be considered a mazurek. There are many Polish versions of the mazurek but the most notable one is the mazurka. Chopin first started composing mazurkas in 1825, with a number composed in 1830, the year of the November Uprising, a Polish rebellion against the Russian government. Chopin continued composing them until 1849, the year of his death. The stylistic and musical characteristics of Chopin's mazurkas differ from the traditional variety because Chopin in effect created a completely separate and new genre of mazurka all his own. For example, he used classical techniques in his mazurkas, including counterpoint and fugue. By including more chromaticism and harmony in the mazurkas, he made them more technically interesting than the traditional dances. Scores included: Mazurka in A minor, B.134 Mazurka in A minor, B.140 Mazurka in C major, B.82 Mazurka in D major, B.31 Mazurka in F-sharp major Mazurka, Op.P2 No.1 'Wolowska' Mazurkas, Op.6 Mazurkas, Op.7 Mazurkas, Op.17 Mazurkas, Op.24 Mazurkas, Op.30 Mazurkas, Op.33 Mazurkas, Op.41 Mazurkas, Op.50 Mazurkas, Op.56 Mazurkas, Op.59 Mazurkas, Op.63 Mazurkas, Op.67 Mazurkas, Op.68
