The Complete Chopin Mazurkas 1: 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.

The earliest mazurkas; Op.6; Op.7; KKIV no.1; Op.17; KKIVb nos.3 and 4; Op.24; Op.67 nos.1 and 3; Op.30.
