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!
