This collection of preludes in all major and minor keys contains a wealth of pedagogical challenges for the late-intermediate to early-advanced level student. Each prelude is designed to explore one or more pianistic problems, and serves as excellent preparatory repertoire for the more complex character pieces of the great masters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The sounds of Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Ravel, Gershwin, Prokofieff and Copland are echoed in the pieces in this collection.

    Dennis Alexander's preludes are a wonderful mixture of styles and great pieces for learning several piano challenges. Each piece has a piano problem to be solved by the player, and it made them hard to learn, but they sound very good when you get them. I would recommend these...

    to students who are tired of the standard classical repitoire and want a different sound.
