From the composer:

These preludes were composed for and are dedicated to Alissa Leiser, a pianist with whom I’ve had a long and artistically splendid association. For the most part the titles are self explanatory. Some further thoughts: Reverie bears the subtitle “in memoriam E. H.” and recalls a few aspects from the life of my dear friend Elizabeth Hollander, who died in the fall of 2015. Entropy parodies a well known Chopin prelude and Für Alissa jabs at Beethoven’s indelible contribution to young pianists Für Elise – pun, alas, intended.
