“My piano heard nought but mazurs.”
(Chopin in a letter to his family, 1831)

Anyone who has heard the poetic Chopin Mazurkas knows what a moving experience these dance-miniatures create, and how rare it is to have them all performed at once. For this program, UCLA piano students will gather to perform the complete collection of Chopin Mazurkas (fifty-seven).

Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2017-2018 Dobrow Series.
