Description: Six polonaises and eight mazurkas by people not named Chopin, several from before he was born, give us a wider idea of the style of these two dances and how he permanently affected it. The spells woven by Oginski and Mikuli are equally powerful in the pieces selected here. Tobias Koch (1838 and 1849 Erard and 1848 and 1854 Pleyel pianos).
