Dotted Eighth Notes (continued)

The Mazurka is an original Polish Dance, somewhat slower than the modern Waltz, but with the
rhythm and accents strongly marked. Since the tendency of the tremolo is to smooth over, rather than
to bring out strong* accents and contrasts, it is usually best to confine it strictly to half notes, the
same as in Waltzes. The characteristic feature of a Mazurka is the strong accent on the second
beat, as well as on the first.
It is necessary in this piece to return to the beg-inning-, playing-the first strain once through, be-
fore as well as after playing the Trio.
