Books | Piano

Catalogue No: ED22657
Composer: Nikolai Kapustin
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Kapustin’s Twenty-Four Preludes op.53 were written in 1988. Clearly influenced by Chopin in their key scheme and brevity, they present us with a great variety of jazz styles: blues (prelude 11), ballad (5 & 9), jazz waltz (18), swing (17 & 19), jazz funk (7 & 12) and even an allusion to Take Five (13). In many of them the composer states a theme and then “improvises” a new melody over the underlying chord structure. The whole set projects an ebullient spontaneity, and it is fast becoming one of Kapustin’s most popular works.
