Prelude in C Minor, Frédéric Chopin

Frédéric Chopin referred to as "the poet of the piano", is a polish composer. He composed almost exclusively for the piano. This piece is from his set of 24 preludes, each of which is composed in a different key. According to pianist John Thompson, "This Prelude is suggestive of the solemnity of a funeral procession."
