The 24 Preludes, one in each major and minor key, are among Chopin's most masterful works. Ranging from miniatures for intermediate-level students to lengthier works for advanced pianists, the Preludes were written in a monastery during the winter of 1839. The preface to this historically informed edition contains a thorough discussion of pedaling, tempo, ornamentation and rubato in Chopin's piano music in general and the preludes specifically. Also included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label by internationally renowned artist Idil Biret. She has made more than 70 recordings and has received numerous awards including: Lily Boulanger Memorial, Boston; Harriet Cohen - Dinu Lipatti gold medal, London; Chevalier de l'Ordre du Merite, France; State Artist, Turkey and many others.

It's good to know there's still a musical merchant that cares for its customers! Members of Harmony Central recommend you guys. I read their reviews and I'm glad I did. Thanks again & have a great day!"

"I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your quality customer service. Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."
