Adventures in Lyricism: Prelude


The Prelude was my third piece (after Spanish Inquisition and Chaos). It was my musical response to his challenge, “Find another technique, the stuff you are giving me is becoming repetitive and boring.” (He was actually a bit nicer than that, but still very direct). After I handed him the Prelude, both my instructor and I thought, “That’s it, that’s a wrap for the project!” We were wrong, because there was quite a bit more to come. The Finale is simply a reprise and embellishment of the Prelude, to frame the entire suite.
