GUEST,MTed Mazurkas and Polka Mazurkas (31) RE: Mazurkas and Polka Mazurkas 10 Jan 03

Look for Obereks and Kujawiaks as well, since they are faster and slower versions of the Mazurka--With due respect, it takes more to learn the proper feeling and tempo for these wonderful melodies than simply listening to an ABC file--I played in the stage band for a traditional Polish folkdance ensemble, and if they are not played properly, it is impossible to execute the dance figures--and performers become amazingly difficult if the beat isn't where they need it to be--

I believe that both Blue Kujawiak and Ada's Kujawiak, which are my favorites, are listed in JC's Tunefinder, but I haven't been able to access it. I have the sheet music for a couple of old time Obereks, but they may be of marginal value--still, PM me if you are interested--
