dum dum da dum (VI)

If you listen to radio 3 at all, then for the last week or so you'll have noticed an onslaught of mazurkas, waltzes, preludes, nocturnes, ballades etc., and all because it's Chopin's 200th birthday.
Unfortunately I haven't finished my stupidly ambitious other Chopin project in time, but until that day, here's my happy birthday to the guy, my own recording of his funeral march. I must say; I've always found it rather funny that of all the world famous melodies one could give the world, Chopin would give us the universal sonic signifier of death. So here's to him!
