L'Inconnu d'Limoise (French mazurka by Maxou Heintzen) - and here's a nice version of it.


I really like this.

cheers

agreed excellent tune, and I need to practise waltzes this'll get my vote uness something else pops up that attracts.  Still listening to it, I like the chords on there own variation at the end (i often do that myself, although not generally at the end).


Agreed this is my fav for next month

Brian - It is a Mazurka not a waltz so the bass has different emphasis. I used to play it a a slow waltz until I attended the Vienna session where they play it as a mazurka for the dance which changed my view of the tune.

Took the words right out of my fingers Lester.

I believe the difference is more than just different emphasis in the bass.  It is a different rhythm which means the melody has to be played differently too.  Ideally you need to do the dance, or at least watch the dance to understand exactly the mazurka rhythm.  The three beats in a mazurka bar are pretty much equal, and the tempo can be little slower too.  In some versions of the dance there is a lift in the third beat of alternate bars which should come through in the music.

Is there any way we could just have a clean list of all the submissions without the critiques/comments?

maybe one admin thread only that lists the submissions... If a couple of days goes by, you have to search through a lot of pages.

L'Inconnu d'Limoise

This one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qPZu8e2UjE is murderously slow for dancing to, but pleasantly slow for learning fingering and chords. Should be about twice as fast once mastered - as per Lester's reference

I believe the difference is more than just different emphasis in the bass. 


I agree with this completely. I think it's a mistake to think that the difference in the feel of the tune comes from the bass.  In my opinion the feel of the tune is created entirely by the melody and the right hand and what you do with the bass side can either detract or add to it.  In the case of a waltz vs. a mazurka, the left hand can do exactly the same thing and the tune will come out right as long as you get the correct feel in the melody.... IMHO.

I've been watching the youtube video of L'Inconnu de Limoise over and over - it's such a beautiful tune!
It's definitely got my vote - either that or Graeme's grandad's tune, just because playing a tune someone's grandad wrote is such a lovely idea.
Can anyone tell me why L'Inconnu de Limoise sounds so familiar? Has it been recorded recently or been on a CD? I thought it may have been done by Wood and Cutting, but I don't think so.

The first few bars sound to me rather like Michael Turner's, and the B reminds me of the Oot Pik Waltz.

The rhythm of a mazurka is more bouncy than a waltz. The basic waltz step is Left, right, left, Right,left,right (ONE-two-three, ONE-two-three,) whilst a mazurka is Left, right, hop, Left, right, left
(ONE-two-HOP, ONE-two-three). If that makes sense.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.  He's written so many beautiful tunes.  The strange thing is that the  ones that became popular are not half as good as most of the others.

That is a lovely tune. It makes me left leg tense up, which is always a good indicator that it's a cracking tune :)
