The composer presents six piano preludes, dedicated to the pianist Alissa Leiser.

They are

  1. Momentum
  2. Swerving
  3. Reverie
  4. Interruption
  5. Entropy
  6. Für Alissa

Reverie is written in memoriam to Lewis Spratlan’s friend Elizabeth Hollander, who died in 2015, and contains tributes to her. Entropy winks to the well known c minor prelude of Chopin, but takes a Spratlanian turn through harmony and time. The final movement is, in Spratlan’s words, a “jab at Beethoven’s indelible contribution to young pianists… pun, alas, intended.”
