        The pieces are quite advanced if one wants to play them correctly... The biggest problems would be the speed as quite a lot of them are Vivace or Presto or at least 100 bpm. A good example of the high skill level needed would be the Prelude in F-sharp Minor Op.28 No.8. The less difficult pieces would be the Prelude in E Minor Op 28 No4, Prelude in B Minor Op 28 No 6, Prelude in A Major Op 28 No 7 and the Prelude in C Minor Op 28 No 20. All of which would be no higher than Grade 6. Overall a MUST have for any Chopin lover!
