About

These preludes, also know as Six Little Preludes, have varied origins: the first two were written in 1973 for piano student of mine (Ruth Konise) to perform in piano competitions, the third being written as a student exercise around the same time. A couple of years later when I was studying composition with Victor Legley at the Koninklijk Muziekconservatorium in Brussels I was asked to compose pieces for use as sight-reading test; these were re-worked to produce the final three pieces of the set.
