Préludes Book 8

The eighth book of piano préludes was begun in May, 2017. It is in progress. Each title is the name of a spice.

#71 Paprika is a prélude on a syncopated falling figure, and was written for Talia Amar.

#72 Mustard is a prélude on broken octaves in both hands, sometimes with extra notes, culminating in competing strands of parallel fifths at the end. Here is the crapfest MIDI.
