Chapple: Praeludiana for Organ

Books | Organ

Publisher: Chester Music
Artist: Brian Chapple
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Chapple's Praeludiana is an extended 'celebration' of Chopin's well-known prelude in C minor.

First, a fast, flashing sequence of chords moves from manual to manual: next a Stravinskyan barrage of brass fanfares alternates with soft clusters. The following Andante section poses soft staccato groups against live legato lines and culminates in an ascending passage punctuated by gruff exclamations. After a pause, the Stravinskyan motif reappears but extended and leaping to a climax which fires off the final statement of the Chopin theme.
