14 Piano Preludes op. 80
by Gregor Huebner
These preludes are written for solo piano. All the themes are playable by any intermediately skilled pianist and can be improvised on as Gregor did in the recoding. Players can add intros and outros as they like and are free to include their own ideas.
Originating from the title, “Stories from the New York Lockdown”, Gregor started this project in 2020 not knowing that it would become an entire collection of compositions for solo piano, recorded and released on one of his favorite labels in Munich, Solo Musica.
Sample a few of the beautiful 14 preludes from this collection
I wrote this for my wife and arranged it for my project El Violin Latino. It originated from when I was studying Cuban music. African Heartbeat is based on the rhythms of the Bata drums, which are used in religious ceremonies of the Santeria in Cuba.
I wrote this a while ago and dedicated it to the people who suffered from the massive earthquake years ago in Nepal. I recorded Kathmandu in many different configurations, but I think that the solo piano version is strong and pure.
