Poetry of the Preludes, The

By Phillip Wilcher

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Chopin's Preludes as poems  ... and other occasional writings.

The premise for this volume was to present Chopin’s Preludes as something other than what they are, without forsaking their genre of expression, a literary work in the form of poetry as equally evocative of the inner voice and measured workings of the music as the music might itself be suggestive; to intimate by way of analogy something of a guide towards their interpretation without intruding upon inclination.

Considering all that has been written about Chopin’s Preludes, it would seem there is little room for anything else to be said, save perhaps for the notion that within the motion of the music awaits a feeling for metrical form yet to be realized by way of the written word.
