Four preludes--Nos.6,7,8 and 9--from a large group first published in the New Music Edition. They exhibit Ruth Crawford's earthy, uncompromising use of dissonance coupled with her well- defined musical forms and her sensitivity to piano color. The melodies lie as diamonds embedded into the rock-like textures that surround them. In fact, in Prelude No.7, Crawford has seen fit to indicate the melodic line over the music itself. 1981 piano competition, studios,colleges, libraries, professional. Medium difficult.
