I am looking for a slow-ish Mazurka music for my choreography. But so far, searches on itunes has been unsuccessful. I actually have a few that might work, but the pianists were playing them with retards and quite dramatic tempo change which is not working out with my choreography. Any idea on where and how to look for such music with less of a tempo change or retards in the middle?
Many thanks!

Ballet Bunnie, when I went to iTunes and just searched Mazurka, I found a Mazurka on Tchaikovsky:Children's Album Op.39. (#17 on my list). it is 1:14 seconds. Check it out.

Repeat it! You can use so many different programs to do this. Garage band is great.

Thank you, b1! It is great! This is much better than the piece of music that I am using right now (which includes unsquare measures, retards, and volume change)! Flowers to you! :clover:
