The Complete Chopin Mazurkas 2: Canons Buried in Flowers

Venue: St Mary’s Church

MacGregor is one of the world’s most celebrated pianists. Schumann called Chopin’s 57 mazurkas ‘canons buried in flowers’, a synthesis of Polish folk culture, nostalgia, poetry and political defiance. Performed chronologically in two concerts today, they portray a subtle and confessional diary of a transcendent, innovative composer.

Op.33; Op.41; KKIIb nos.4 and 5; Op.50; Op.56; Op.59; Op.63; the final mazurkas.
