Title: Preludes, Op. 28
The term Prelude suggests an opening piece that introduces perhaps a larger work that follows. In the realm of Romantic character pieces, the Prelude was a stand-alone work that could display a variety of moods. Chopin's preludes were short, none of them more than ninety measures long. The shortest of the collection was just twelve bars, leading some critics to view them as somehow in. Liszt, however, saw them as innovative and poetic. Chopin composed twenty-four Preludes between 1835 and 1839, dedicating them to Camille Pleyel and Joseph Christoph Kessler. Although each work can stand alone, some scholars have suggested that the collection is one large work with twenty-four pieces, citing motivic connections among the preludes, and even musical connections from the ends of some preludes to the beginnings of others. Chopin never played all twenty-four in a row in a public performance. In fact, he never played more than four in concert. Chopin didn't give them evocative names, like Schumann and Liszt did for some of their pieces that were of a similar character. Hans von Bülow suggested some names for the preludes like Reunion, Tolling Bells, The Polish Dancer, and Raindrop.
