Chopin's Preludes
Fall 2024
Taught By: Yuval Shapira
Section: A

CRN: 12819

Credits: 2

Chopin’s 24 preludes, Op. 28, have become a cornerstone of the piano repertoire, both as individual pieces and as a complete cycle. This course will explore how analysis may inform the performance of these pieces. This will be done through in-class performances, presentations, and class discussions. We will touch upon analytical aspects (such as form, structure, motivic design, and more), as well as issues of performance practices and traditions. A final in-class recital will conclude the course. Open to piano majors, or others with instructor’s permission.
