3 Preludes For Piano

3 Preludes For Piano composed by George Gershwin (1898-1937). For solo piano. Masterworks; Piano Collection. Alfred's Classic Editions. Advanced level piece for the Piano Solo event with the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Festivals Bulletin 2008-2009-2010. Standards and 20th Century. SMP Level 10 (Advanced); NFMC Level: Musically Advanced Class 1. Single piece. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.PS0043).

ISBN 0769260098. Standards and 20th Century. 9x12 inches.

These three short preludes show Gershwin's mastery of the melding of jazz and classical idioms. The Allegro ben ritmato e deciso is filled with rhythmic, syncopated rhythms and is a showpiece for bravura performance. Andante con moto e poco rubato is a lyric blues with ostinato-like accompaniment, interspersed with bridge material. Allegro ben ritmato e deciso, the brilliant closing to the set, displays dramatic writing with craggy rhythms and exciting syncopation. A powerful concert work.

  • July 09, 2009 a stellar piece

    i know how to play the first prelude and i enjoyed it thoroughly. Its a very challenging piece and there is that sense of fulfillment once you learn how to play gerswhins piece.Im still working on the second and third prelude.

  • October 26, 2007 have to work to produce beautiful music!

    This is wonderful music but I'm finding it very difficult: times are tricky, keys with lots of sharps and flats, reach. I know what it's supposed to sound like and I'm very far from that. But it is so worth the effort. I'm using these preludes...

    to get my game back on the piano - haven't played in many years, but the goal is worth it with this music. Definitely not for beginners!

  • May 27, 2007 Amazing

    Innovative, inspiring, challenging and rewarding. While in the Gershwin style, there is definitely some slight Debussy influence here. I'd recommend this trio of preludes to anyone looking for something different.

    The rhythms are rather intimidating and take some working out, but these are a must for any serious musician's repertoire. Besides that, they're just plain FUN!
