Frédéric Chopin: 24 Preludes Op. 28 With Alexander Melnikov On Piano
An exploration of Chopin’s style
Polish-born Frédéric Chopin ventured to Paris at an early age, never returning to his homeland. Understandably, he is often mistakenly described as a French composer. These 24 little preludes of one or two minutes each explore the depth and breadth of Chopin’s compositional style influenced by the City of Light. The Romantic composer was famous for his beautifully scored runs which fit the pianist’s hands like gloves. Hear the Parisian piano perfection.
