Anyone play this very short prelude (less than 1 min.)?
What do you think about it? Is it technically awkward or hard to interpret? I'm thinking of venturing into Chopin Preludes and I like this one.

Thanks.

I've played it. I found it to be lots of fun to play, albeit short. I didn't find it too technically demanding - the tricky part is holding the notes for their full durations. As it moves pretty quick, I've heard a lot of renditions where the pianist doesn't really pay attention to the note durations, rather they just skate over it, trusting the speed of the piece to mask it. Practice slowly, paying attention to the durations, then bring it up to speed.

I've also played it, and similarly didn't find it too taxing - I was obviously no where near Argerich's time but still under a minute! I found it difficult to sustain the melodic lines, it's sort of like a dialogue between the left and right hands, and it took me quite a lot of time to get this right.

In my CD collection, I have 5 different recordings of it, each one is under a minute:
0:34 Martha Argerich
0:53 Claudio Arrau
0:45 Jorge Bolet
0:48 Shura Cherkassky
0:45 Alfred Cortot

Number 22 is not my favorite prelude. For a short piece, I prefer #11 in B. I think the "shortest" prelude is #10, C#min, but it's too difficult for me. Argerich, again, has Olympian time of 24 seconds for it.

I just played it as part of competition rep. a few months ago. It's not too technically difficult, but I did struggle with the left hand octaves in the middle for a while. They are not as much technically demanding, but it's hard to make them sound interesting musically. Many pianists rush through them without any phrasing in the left hand and they end up sounding monotonous and boring - I use some rubato and crecendos to remedy this. Not the best prelude Chopin wrote, but a crowd pleaser and a great piece to play when you're ****ed off or sad smile .

I think the shortest is no 14.

I have Argerich's recording of the Preludes, and No. 10 (24 seconds) is the shortest, with 1, 10, 11, and 14 all coming in under 30 seconds.
