D flat Raindrops Prelude .

This is my very recent rendition of a Chopin song.

I think Sundrops Quaalude might be a better title -

Rain shifts to a spell of sleet and then some warming sundrops, it's parallel minor, and then returns.

Chopin named it due of its steady plodding on top of the "one-count" - largely on one of the "perfect 5ths" . . . he normally documented his etudes etc. for 88 keys even though fewer black and white keys were available to him to write, teach and play on while in both Poland and France / Majorca.

Nicely performed...
This is one of Chopin's great hits, a number I learned as a child about 100 years ago. You do a beautiful job with your rendition. I do like the turns you throw in in the Db major sections. You seem very comfortable with this piece and it is nice to hear the bell-like clarity of your keyboard, too. Such a pleasure to hear this lovely piece again with your unique interpretation and sensitive playing.
