Subject: Chopin's Prelude #20

[ Op 28 No 20 in Cm, here transcribed to C#m - Weed 7/4/00 ]

This is Chopin's Prelude #20.  I assume it was originally written for piano.
It has a nice flowing feel and some very striking but melodic chord changes.
It is in the key of E [no, C#m - Weed 7/4/00] and 4 time.  The |'s mark
quarter note beats. The rhythm is constant with chords on each beat, and a
16th note chord preceding the last beat.  The piece seems so stark sometimes
that it is hard to avoid arpeggiating almost every chord, but this would take
away from the effect of arpeggiating the 4th measure.  Instead of this, I play
most of the chords sul diapason and emphasize certain chords by playing sul
ponticello.  For example, the first two chords in the second measure sound
great sul ponticello and then gradually work your way back sul diapason.
Don't forget to notice the dynamic markings.  This becomes an exercise in
minimizing string noise as you quickly change chords and the piece keeps
getting quieter and quieter.  Well, enough babble; on with the show.

Let me know if you find any mistakes.
