Two Preludes, Op 67
composer
1912/3

Andante  [1'50]
Presto  [1'01]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The two preludes Op 67 (1912–13) come from the time of the last sonatas and with their rarified dynamic level provide a welcome contrast. The first circles mysteriously around the same few enigmatic harmonies; the second, with its rapid, velvety, chromatic left hand, led the early biographer A E Hull to write in 1916 of a vision of ‘hundreds of multi-coloured night moths fluttering about in the semi-darkness’.
