Lyric Preludes is an introduction to the whole Romantic period -- from Chopin and Schumann to Brahms and Debussy. Like Chopin, Gillock has written 24 preludes featuring all major and minor keys. But his preludes aren't just imitations of other composer's styles, they are valid, original works. An essential book for all pianists.
