Chopin Piano Prelude No. 14 in E-flat minor

Chopin Piano Prelude No. 14 in E-flat minor

Belongs to Chopin’s 24 Preludes, Op. 28, a set of short pieces for the piano, one in each of the twenty-four keys, originally published in 1839. Chopin wrote them between 1835 and 1839, partly at Valldemossa, Majorca, where he spent the winter of 1838-39 and where he had fled with George Sand and her children to escape the damp Paris weather. In Majorca, Chopin had a copy of Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, and as in each of Bach’s two sets of preludes and fugues, his Op. 28 set comprises a complete cycle of the major and minor keys, albeit with a different ordering. This prelude recalls No. 1 in its brevity and textural uniformity. Lasting under 30 seconds, it is the shortest of the set. It’s mood and/or theme is characterized by fear, a stormy sea.
