Five Preludes for Piano
Genre-spanning piano music suitable for players of Grade 6 standard and above
Pop, folk, classical and other influences
The first four preludes move through different styles, showing some folk influence, a hint of dance track piano parts in no.3, and generally using chord sequences that are closer to pop songs than classical piano. No.5 is a bringing together of themes from the earlier movements, woven together by an insistent rhythm that drives right through to the end. These pieces should suit players of around grade 6/7 standard and will hopefully appeal to pianists with a wide taste in piano styles.
