All the Preludes Op. 28 by Frédéric Chopin are a set of 24 short pieces written for the piano, one in each key. Although the term prelude generally means an introductory piece, Chopin's Preludes stand alone. The easiest of them can be played by the intermediate student, while the most difficult require an advanced technique.
Chopin's Preludes have been compared to Johann Sebastian Bach's Preludes in the Well-Tempered Clavier. However, each of Bach's preludes leads to a fugue in the same key and Bach's pieces were arranged chromatically, while Chopin's were arranged in a circle of fifths.
Chopin's Preludes were partially written at Valldemossa, Majorca in the winter of 1838/1839, where the composer had fled with George Sand and her children to escape the damp Paris weather.
For those who enjoy playing Chopin's music, this piece is one for the classical collection...
