I don't really edit Wikipedia but I was just browsing this page and noticed you have these listed Mazurkas out of order. It was originally thought that the C# Minor came first in the set but modern scholarship shows that Chopin intended it the be the last piece in the set. I don't have any source off hand that I can cite so I didn't edit the page but I'm sure someone who edits these pages can find it. --142.151.169.108 (talk) 22:13, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Spot on, and thanks for the correction. The C minor is certainly No. 4 in my Urtext and Schirmer editions. I'll make the change. -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 22:48, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Actually there are different editions. Quite a few place the C minor as No.1. The discrepancy should be reflected in the article, not just on the Talk page, so I have added something about this (and a link to the appropriate page at the Chopin Institute).Orfeocookie (talk) 15:42, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
