Score for track 'Sand' from the album 'Chopin Fusion'.
from Chopin Prelude 20 – ‘Sand’
Probably Chopin’s best known prelude…
The original melody is transformed using 5 time, with a further section in 7 time, plus an improvised section. The result is a musical picture of Chopin’s vicissitudinal relationship with George Sand: caring, passionate, dynamic, but increasingly turbulent…
Note the rich harmonic support for the simple melody in line 2 (typical Chopin!)
