I hope I don’t annoy anyone for posting an italian tune.
I love that tune and I would to share it with you.
It is from Piemonte region (northern Italy).

Thanks, I’m enjoying it, though trying to resist the temptation not to do the repeats. πŸ˜‰

Somewhere I think I’ve others you might also enjoy, if memory will cooperate, and I might tempt fate by adding one here.

I forgot to say that that tune is not to be played , and danced, as typical Italian mazurca, that is faster, but as a French mazurka.

"c",
we play it with the repeats, but you are authorized to play it without πŸ™‚ .

Yes, I couldn’t bring myself to play it fast and it just naturally seemed to call for taking it as you’ve said…

Do you know the dance at all? I’d love to see a description for it. Mind you, I might have it somewhere. I’ll have to look, along with the hinted at ‘other mazurka’… πŸ˜‰

the basic steps of this kind of mazurka are
| Left Right Rest | Left Right Left | Right Left Rest | Right Left Right |

Among the universal. πŸ˜‰ I wonder if there’s a YouTube for this one?

It’s such a shame that the Classically trained always screw up this family of dance forms. Someone really should start including ‘dance’ in the teaching, and reconnecting with living roots…

The Italian "standard" basic mazurka steps are different:
| Left Right Left | Right Left Right | and so on.

I think that the knowledge of the dances helps to play better the dance tunes.
