OK, time for another prelude. I tried to make this one so it seems to spring out of the prelude in e major.
Here is the new prelude
Prelude in c# minor
Here are the preludes so far. (A little note – remember that I am doing a circle like this (cap=major, lower=minor) – C-a-D-b-E-c#-F#-eb(d#)-Ab-f-Bb-g - Eb-c-F-d-G-e-A-f#-B-g#-Db-bb )
1 – Prelude in C
2 - Prelude in a minor
3 – Prelude in D
4 – Prelude in b minor
5 – Prelude in E
6 - Prelude in c# minor
13 – Prelude in Eb
14 – Prelude in c minor
People paying close attention may remember prelude 13 in Eb as the piano version of my Challenge 13 entry. Shortly after writing it I was listening to Debussy’s Preludes and was struck be how much my piece seemed to fit in, especially with Book 2 of his Preludes. This prelude also seems to start in (which is the expected key in my circle) yet ends in Eb – I think it makes a good transition between the 2 halfs of this. Also, the c minor prelude (actually the first written) flows smoothly out of the Eb one. I might loose the banging chords at the end of the Eb Prelude, but, at least for now, it is going to stay in its spot in this series.
I also put the c minor prelude (my favorite) back into the sequence this time.
Any comments, good bad or ugly, are much appreciated.
