The Preludes Project is Holly Roadfeldt's debut album and features a complete recording of Chopin's, Op. 28 Preludes for Piano and a new set of twenty-six piano preludes written by american composer Kirk O'Riordan. In her performance of these works, Roadfeldt takes claim to one of the most iconic pieces in the solo piano repertoire and also annoints O'Riordan's new work as an impressive achievement among Classical music's greatest sets of piano preludes. In the Preludes Project, Roadfeldt also makes the persuasive case that, as Chopin's preludes were to Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, so might O'Riordan's preludes be to Chopin's. Certainly, O'Riordan matches Chopin's ability to create a vast collection of nuanced, indelible and - most importantly - satisfactorily self-contained musical statements. As one expects, the Twenty-Six Preludes vary a great deal, but each achieves it's beauty by crafting a unique space with the piano's voice. In this way, O'Riordan's preludes connect with the fundamental motivations underlying Bach and Chopin's famous preludes: exploring the sound of the isntrument.
