People living in Central Poland have created songs and dances that express their lives and values. The poetry of the Polish tongue influences and shapes melodies - which are interpreted and improvised by instruments. Dancers turn instrumental melodies into movements, which again changes the music. In this lecture, we will observe the process of creating mazurek as a musical language from archived recordings through the Janusz Prusinowski Kompania’s interpretation - to experiments with the public. Perhaps we’ll come to Chopin’s version from this musical grammar!
