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 Mazurka is notable for its short, brillant trio in the piccolo range. Startling and deligthful to hear, it is not unduly difficult in the given configuration. The rest of the arrangement is simple.
