   Harmonic Analysis of Chopin's Prelude #4
Frederic Chopin's (1810-1839) Prelude #4 for the piano is a highly chromatic piece. Yet it is based in a very simple harmonic progression as we will try to demonstrate in this article.
   Chopin Early Editions
The University of Chicago Library is home to a distinguished collection of over 400 first and early printed editions of musical compositions by Frédéric Chopin. These editions are of particular interest to Chopin scholars and bibliographers because Chopin's works were often published concurrently in several countries with variant texts. Early re-printings were issued using the same plates, causing difficulties identifying first and subsequent impressions. Scholars can establish a sequence of publication by comparing a range of printings. The collection at the University of Chicago, maintained in the Special Collections Research Center, contains evidence that contributes to an understanding of the printing and publishing history of Chopin's works.
