    I have made it a goal of mine to finish up my Chopin mazurka project this year since it's Chopin's 'big' year and all that. And probably no one will critique my mazurkas, like how it's been lately, (and which saddens me :( ) and so I've taken to bypassing the forum and just putting them up on the site. Then in a couple days I listen to those recordings and critique myself. I am not taking lessons currently and so I'm not always sure if I am getting everything right, but isn't it funny how your own recordings sound different to you after you haven't heard them in a while? Well, that's what I do and then if I find myself cringing upon hearing a certain recording, then I know that's one I have to re-do. I'm putting up my latest bunch of mazurkas just so you can see that I'm not slacking off.
    And the next time I put up some mazurkas, it will be my last time since I'm almost done. Still practicing two and waiting for music I ordered for the last two.

    Okay, here they are with a few of my personal thoughts.

    1. Chopin - Mazurka in F-sharp minor, Op. 59, No. 3 can't remember if I already put this one up here or not - I've been playing nothing but mazurkas for the past couple weeks and now I'm real confused...Anyway, I used to like this one until I started practicing it hard. It's okay, but really I like the 2nd half better than the first.
    2. Chopin - Mazurka in F minor, Op. 63, no. 2 this one is so so...
    3. Chopin - Mazurka in G major, Op. 67, no. 1 I like this one
    4. Chopin - Mazurka in G minor, Op. 67, no. 2 not particularly crazy about this one
    5. Chopin - Mazurka in C Major, Op. 67, no. 3 this one is okay
    6. Chopin - Mazurka in A minor, Op. 67, no. 4 same
    7. Chopin - Mazurka in C Major, Op. 68, no. 1 short and sweet - I like this one
    8. Chopin - Mazurka in A minor, Op. 68, no. 2 really like this one!
    9. Chopin - Mazurka in F Major, Op. 68, no. 3 not crazy about this one
    10. Chopin - Mazurka in A minor, Op. Posth. No. 1 don't really like this one
    11. Chopin - Mazurka in A minor, Op. Posth. No. 2 this one is okay except for the middle part which I hate!
    12. Chopin - Mazurka Op. Posth. in G Major this one is okay
    13. Chopin - Mazurka Op. Posth. in B-flat Major really like this one!
    14. Chopin - Mazurka Op. Posth. in C Major not crazy about this one
    15. Chopin - Mazurka Op. Posth. in D Major not crazy about this one
    16. Chopin - Mazurka Op. Posth. in D Major (2nd version) like this one better than the 1st version
    17. Chopin - Mazurek Dabrowskiego indifferent to this one. Not sure what this is - Poland's national anthem or something like that?
