Your Moment of Music and Art, Week 5, from Pam and Wendell

Week 5 gave us new challenges and we hope that you will enjoy the pairing of Wendell’s “Winter Marsh” with Pam’s version of Chopin’s A Minor Mazurka, Op. 17 No. 4.  The combination has the feel of a journey, both in the varied subtlety of Wendell’s landscape and in the form of the music itself.  It is written in an A-B-A form, beginning in the somber minor mode, switching to A Major in the more hopeful “B” section, only to return to the melancholy minor key.

Dear Friends,

Here is our Week 4 Offering:

Chopin’s Mazurka in B-flat Major, Op. 7 No. 1 is one of his most lively mazurkas.  It is fun to play and also to imagine the dancers and folk musicians perhaps playing violins, flutes and bagpipes – especially towards the end of the piece. Wendell chose his painting “Poppies” (acrylic on paper 11 x 7.5), for its exuberant folk art character, which pairs well with this Polish folk dance.  When you visit the Polish countryside you will see fields of beautiful poppies – the national flower of Poland.

Please enjoy and share with your friends.   

Thank you, as always,

Pam and Wendell

Your Moment of Music and Art Week 3

This week features Pam’s version of Chopin’s Mazurka in G Minor, Op. 67 No. 2 and Wendell’s “Evening Approaches.” About this collaboration: Pam says: “This mazurka is an example of the kujawiak type of mazurka – slow and melancholic- from the Kujawy region of Poland. One of my favorite things about it is that Chopin interrupts the main melody with a mournful little solo line for right- hand only, before returning to the main theme.” Wendell says: “I chose ‘Evening Approaches’ to accompany this mazurka because I think this bleak landscape visually echoes the slow, melancholic nature of the piece. I paired the short, blues-like right hand solo melody with a focus on a relatively empty section of the horizon in the left-side of the painting, visually reflecting the spare, mournful character.” Please enjoy!
