on Feb 17th, 2009Frédéric Chopin Prélude Op. 28 No. 20 C minor
Prelude No. 20 is short but quite famous, with slow majestic crotchet chords in the right hand predominating, against crotchet octaves in the left. It was originally written in two sections of four measures, although Chopin later added a repeat of the last four measures at a softer level, with an expressive swell before the final cadence.
