Here is the fifth prelude in my set. A very virtuosic prelude. as I view D major as the virtuosos key. also quite heavy and at least in my opinion fun to listen too. 

Please leave thoughts down below 🙂

That's a nice prelude! 

It reminds me somehow to the opening of La Campanella from Liszt on a motif from Paganini's violin concerto. Maybe because of the high figures, though the style is completely different.

Hiya thanks for listening. If your interested this is part of a project I've been working on for a while where I write a prelude for each key. I have done up too D minor so far you can find the rest on my feed, I'd appreciate if you would follow my account so you can stay up to date with my progress 🙂

Very beautiful, I love the pastoral galloping sort of feel (at least that’s what I got). The chromatic opening in the melody reinforces this especially, and the modulation you use in very interesting. Based on this I’m very excited for you to publish the rest of your preludes. If I was playing this one however I would probably be inclined to go slower than the recording you’ve provided, so as the emphasize the left hand pattern a bit more and to make the rolled chords in Measure 8 and elsewhere more distinct.

Thanks for the reply! 

I agree somewhat. the digital rendition is just an approximation of how I want it too sound. in a real performance I'd request a lot more free tempo and rubato. especially with the rolling chords. however for the main theme I would be relatively firm on the tempo I selected.
