Complete Preludes & Etudes
“The piano bard, the piano rhapsodist, the piano mind, the piano soul is Chopin.” – Anton Rubinstein
Chopin was the greatest composer of piano music in the 19th century and, perhaps, of all time. He was the only great composer who wrote almost entirely for the piano, and his works are of such a uniformly high quality that they are all absolutely essential in the repertoire of any aspiring pianist. The Preludes and Etudes are exquisitely beautiful examples of his genius.
Numbering 52 pieces in all, they are reproduced here from the authoritative Mikuli edition and are available for the first time in a low-priced, one-volume publication. The opus listing are:
Op. 28, Nos. 1 – 24
Prelude in C-sharp Minor, Op. 45
Op. 10, Nos. 1 – 12
Op. 25, Nos. 1 – 12
Trois Nouvelles Etudes
As Chopin’s student and, later, his teaching assistant, Karol (Carl) Mikuli (1819 – 1897) – Polish pianist, composer, conductor and teacher – was in a particularly privileged and advantageous position to take into account all that the master brought to his playing and teaching. His editorial contributions to this volume reflect his understanding of the principles that underly this body of work, imported to him in word and deed by the composer.
