What does this mark in Chopin's Mazurka mean?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread
There is a mark in Chopin's Mazurka Op 17 No 4, where there is a little squiggly mark above the B. Can someone check it out at this URL and tell me what it means to do? http://www.hanson.net/users/zeldah/Mazurka.jpg
It sounds really funning in the recordings.

It's a trill mark.

I figured it was a trill mark but, all the rest of the trills in the songs are indicated by tr. And the recording does not sound like a trill in that place. Maybe it just means a short trill......

it's a turn. (there're 2 kinds of turn: upper turn & lower turn) of course you can call it a trill. but more accurate is TURN.
