Here I’m presenting the "Prelude", Op. 40, No. 7 in E by Sergei Bortkiewicz from his set entitled Seven Preludes published by Litolff. It was written in 1931 during his so-called second Berlin period. This wonderful Late Romantic work provides a rousing and fitting conclusion to Opus 40 (although I still have more pieces to learn there). This was not an easy piece for me to play. The constant moving chords, the melody and some accompaniment co-habitating within the right hand, the stamina needed, and some large leaps were all challenges. I think I've done my best with it. I hope you'll enjoy this music!
