For solo piano, includes score. Each piece in 7 Preludes Revisited is a transformation of one of Chopin's Op. 28 preludes. The basic method of transformation is to eliminate much of the original prelude, then manipulate the remaining material in a variety of ways with one important restriction: each chosen note must remain in the same rhythmic place as it was in the original. Thus the transformed preludes accurately map back onto their sources. In a sense these new pieces have always been there, waiting to be extracted, waiting for someone to "let them out."
