In this programme Gerald Hendrie analyses the harmonic style of two short pieces of music and plays each of them through on an appropriate instrument. Both pieces are preludes; one for the clavicho...rd and one for the piano. The first is by J.S.Bach, from the '48' and the second is by Chopin, Opus 28 for piano, dating from about 1836.

Footage description: Professor Gerald Hendrie introduces the programme and begins an analysis of Bach's C major prelude. He plays through the piece. Professor Hendrie carries out a closer analysis of the first 19 bars, some of which are illustrated in harmonic reduction to simplify the process. He then plays the complete Prelude once more. He now plays a prelude by Chopin, Opus 28, slowed down to a speed more suitable for analysis. He then analyses the first bars in depth Professor Hendrie analyses the second and third sections of the prelude. He plays it through slowly and then at the correct speed.
