Little Prelude in A minor

Prelude - Prélude



This Little Prelude in A minor by Domenico Zipoli is a work from the Italian Baroque period.

It has a very simple A-A-B-B musical form :
  • Measures 1-8 : Phrase A : starting in A minor and modulating to the dominant key of E Major. The melody is played by the right hand
  • Measures 9-16 : Phrase B : starting in the relative major key of C Major and modulating back to the main key of A minor at measure 13. The melody is played by the left hand
This Little Prelude in A minor is very effective for developing a good balance between the right and left hands.

In the first 8 measures (Phrase A), the right hand plays the melody and hence should be more in evidence while the left hand plays a soft accompaniment.

In the last 8 measures (Phrase B), the left hand plays the melody while the right hand plays the accompaniment.

Please take note that the dynamics and tempo marking in this score are editorial and are provided as mere indications to the player.

Duration : 01:00
