Op.28 No.6
by Frederic Chopin


The “Prelude Op.28 No.6 by Chopin” in B minor, returns to the elegiac mood of the Prelude in E minor. In the melody, shifted into the cello register, a keening tone has been heard. George Sand was the first listener to note that it ‘casts the soul into fearful depression’. It is one of the two preludes described as ‘raindrop’, on account of the insistent repetition of notes in the upper part.
