Mazur is a dance for two friends sharing what they love and what they feel they have lost. For Chopin and his friends what was lost was Poland, the country to which they could not return. Mazur is another Polish word for the Mazurka in which Chopin again and again expressed longing for his beloved homeland.
First performed at The Place on Wed 10 June 2015.
