OK - none of which I have played myself. smile However, I'm kind of running out of time to seriously tackle them. ha

I don't believe a word of this either

No such thing as a favorite Chopin piece. Too many. Though I often think of Nocturne in F:

Thought I commented earlier, but Barcarolle. Second sonata is a close second, and then B-flat minor and D-flat Major nocturnes tie for third.

Ballade no. 4 is my absolute favorite. I also love tristesse, op. 10 no. 3. And Op 25 no 1, aeolian harp.
I also love the very short preludes Op 28 no 1 and no 11.

Did I mention in the past that I was learning 32/2? After reaching a certain level with it, I decided to give it a rest for awhile. Currently having fun revisiting the Three (not so easy) "Nouvelle Etudes" as well as the Opus 25/9 "Butterfly" Etude. If I can eventually get an acceptable recording of any one of these I'll be a happy fella. Always good to have a goal. grin

Very dear and lovely piece.

BTW I had to look it up to see which one #11 is. smile
But I love it and know it well.

I don't know very many of the Preludes by number, mostly just by key, or "hum the first bar."

Let's see, which ones do I know by number:

1
2
4
15
16
17
20
24

That's really it.
Well, 3 sort of. But no others.

I would like to share this interpretation by Hung-Kuan Chen (sorry, don't know why the screen image is black :-) timestamp 14:02

I also don't know them by number, only 1, 7, 11 and the other beautiful short no 26 that is also not mentioned a lot. Until recently I didn't even know that no 26 existed to be honest. Yesterday I started to learn it. It's above my grade but it's short so I think it's not impossible.

I think the preludes that are not part of Op. 28 are not numbered.

No, I guess you are right. It's often mentioned after the Op 28 pieces though. It's called Prelude A flat major KK IVb,7 or just no. 26 or no. 26 B. 86. Chopin didn't add it to the Op. 28 I suppose.

Prelude op26 was published posthumously, around 1918. Therefore, it was assigned a different designation outside of op 28 preludes


"Music, rich, full of feeling, not soulless, is like a crystal on which the sun falls and brings forth from it a whole rainbow" - F. Chopin
"I never dreamt with my own two hands I could touch the sky" - Sappho

Several composers wrote preludes as sets of 24 which use all major and minor keys in logical key sequences - as well as Chopin, there's Alkan (who wrote 25, because he's different), Blumenfeld, Scriabin, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Debussy, York Bowen, Kapustin etc.......which didn't prevent them composing other preludes (solitary or otherwise) not part of any set, or as preludes to something else, like fugues.

In fact, you can have a prelude to anything, including riffs.....

Apparently no one has written a set of 24 postludes using all major and minor keys in logical key sequences.... smile
