Today we have a piano solo to share with you! It is a Polonaise (specifically Polonaise in B flat Major) by Bach.
I love this song, as it hearkens back to my Polish heritage. A polonaise is a Polish dance in 3\4 time (3 beats per measure). It is similar to a Waltz or Polka. The name "Polonaise" is French for "Polish". Polonaise was a common dance at carnivals in 15th century Poland, and is always the first dance at a "studniówka", which is basically the Polish version of a high school prom.
Originally, I didn't love this piece, but the more I played it, the more I loved it! I played it for a piano SAT test in March 2016, and received a score of 22 out of 24 points. I love this piece, and still play it from time to time! Definitely one of my favorites!
Thanks so much for listening! Please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of this piece! God bless!
