Robert Vandall

Built on a repetitive rhythmic and pitch pattern, this prelude is kept interesting by using a variety of compelling harmonies. The introduction of the VI chord engages listeners because of the shift from major chords to minor. The beat is displaced sometimes to create a feel of a slow triplet. The accompaniment pattern keeps the music moving forward. Clear pedaling and legato markings are included to create a flowing line. This prelude is fairly straightforward and, other than a few rhythmic difficulties, does not have many technical challenges.
