Mazurka in A minor, Op. 17, No. 4.
The last mazurka in the set is in 3/4 and is marked Lento, ma non troppo. This piece lasts about four or five minutes in a typical performance. It is one of the more popular mazurkas. The final Mazurka of the set is more characteristic and free than the others. Although it remains in the very homophonic texture, the dynamic variation is much greater. The piece ends with the same four measures as it began, with no pedal, the chords played by the left hand portamento, the tone and time fading away in a perdendosi. These four measures would later be sampled by Henryk Górecki in the opening of the third movement of his third symphony.
