I'm tempted to say this is astringently Romantic, with a French influence... lol... but I'm not quite sure what I mean by that, even myself, Jonathan.
Interesting, nonetheless. I think this is a potentially fruitful idea -- a set of very "modern" preludes for the oft-forgotten harpsichord.
I'll be curious to hear how this series develops, Jonathan. One short prelude out of the blue, in this very terse idiom, tends to dislodge me from my reference points -- but several or more of them that explore the vector of thought more fully would very likely make a handsome set!
