This second piece in my series of Introspections is a sort of passacaglia. It is a dramatic but lyrical piece in triple meter that features a kind of ground bass of chromatic harmony, with melodic variations above it. This much-varied ostinato is introduced emphatically in the opening statement, is developed throughout, and closes the piece, transfigured.In my introduction to this piece, I offer some technical advice for the intermediate advanced pianists, for whom the piece is written, on how to play to hard passages, particularly the fast scales.This piece is not for beginners, but neither is it nearly as difficult as any of the harder etudes by Chopin. Moreover, much of it is easy and, I should hope, gratifying to play.While the harmony of this piece is chromatic and spiky, it is tonal, melodic, and, all said, I give you this one with my most conscientious effort not to make your ears bleed, or leave you baffled or suffering from musical vertigo.The performing time time is about seven minutes.
