“Getting the soul in vibration!”
From the Publisher
Improvising a prelude, warming up, getting ready for performance... is an art in itself.
While it is of paramount importance to warm up the muscles involved in sound production and breathing, it is just as necessary to setthe soul in vibration and ‘warm up’ one’s expressive qualities as well. Combining these two aspects of a performer’s musicality is exactly what The Art of Preluding (by the author of Dainty Studies) sets out to do with short pieces purposely designed to place emphasis on imagination, invention and tone color.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
