Programme Notes / Performance Details :

The prelude starts enegetically with a flow of rapid semiquavers, the music depicting the wind blowing in an empty desert.  The ensuing sections combine rapid sextuplets with long rolls.  A short lyrical section leads to a re-statement of the opening energetic commotion.  Ostinato-like patterns in the left hand can be heard whilst the right hand plays variations of the original melody.  The piece reaches its climax with a "festivo" section in 7/8 time, that incorporates the use of cross sticking much like the timpani technique.
