Prelude 2019

Prelude was written with the idea of bird flight and the freedom a bird has to follow the currents of the wind. I wanted to see where the melody would take me. Constructed in a way that each note responds to the one before, note by note, the music takes itself on a journey. Different to Bach, where the preconceived map or underlying harmonic blueprint of the piece is the defining feature, I set the melody free to find its own way.
