Prelude 8, the “meditative” prelude, is the eighth of 15 works available in the Book of Preludes: 1-15 for Piano, a collection of character pieces by keyboardist, author, educator, and Wehrli Publications founder, Barry Michael Wehrli. These evocative preludes resemble the short, expressive pieces of Beethoven, Chopin and Debussy, but possess elements of later styles such as 20th century, new-age, jazz and more.

Aside from their value as outstanding new performance repertoire, advanced students and professionals are discovering the pedagogical value of the Preludes as they make their way into state teaching organizations across the country such as CAPMT (California) and UMTA (Utah). Teachers often search for new and appealing “serious” music for their piano students. Yet such music is hard to find. The complete Book of Preludes offers nearly an hour of diverse music, each prelude creating its own unique sense of musical journey. All preludes contain damper and sostenuto pedal indications, bar numbers, suggested fingering, and tempo and dynamic marks reflecting the composer’s recorded performance.
