Opus 24 No 2 Mazurka by Frederic Chopin (1810-1849)
Frédéric François Chopin was a Polish composer, virtuoso pianist, and music teacher of French–Polish parentage. A great masters of Romantic music and has been called “the poet of the piano”. He supported himself as a composer and piano teacher, giving few public performances. For most of his life, Chopin suffered from poor health; he died in Paris in 1849 at the age of 39.
This lydian melody in the B section and the modulation up one half-step to Db major in the C section makes this Mazurka an easy favorite, so unusual do the effects sound on guitar. In spite of some quick shifting and strong upper position skills, it is unexpectedly idiomatic.
