Prelude for Solo Piano II

This piece was created using old material with most of the B section content deriving from a guitar sonata that I started writing in China. The piece is full of emotional juxtapositions as it sweeps between the brooding and elation that we can so easily experience in our lives. One unusual feature appears in the form of the 9/8 time signature heard in the A section which generates the feel of a mismatched, frantic waltz.
