Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Prälüd is a Prelude for Solo piano. It is based on the two versions of the octatonic scale.
    The piece starts with the statement of the initial, slightly eerie theme. As this theme grows, it develops into chords and melismas, canonic renditions and intermittent gongs. The piece undergoes a momentary but sudden modulation into its complementary octatonic scale before returning to the home key and concluding with the opening ideas. The name, a phonetic respelling of the world 'Prelude' is a comment on enharmonic spellings of the octatonic scale - there is no single correct way.
