An Evil Eye – the theme tune?

A beautiful little mazurka by Chopin plays a role in An Evil Eye, and readers might like to hear it.


Frederic Chopin, by Delacroix

This is it being played by Cortot:

In An Evil Eye, it is of course played by Palewski, the Polish ambassador, on his violin; and later in the novel he hears it being whistled. Be warned – it’s the kind of tune that goes on a loop in your head all day.
