Interview With Jacqueline Kroft Regarding Her EP “Piano Preludes Vol.02”
Jacqueline says; ” The first prelude I wrote was Prelude 04, it was one of those intoxicating summer mornings in the English countryside and the prelude just came to me in its entirety. The response I got from playing it to friends and family was so positive and exciting that I realised I hadn’t let the piano be the star of the show before. This lead to a playful approach to writing the preludes. I would wake up every morning and write a new one. Lockdown ” The Era of Solitude ” gave me the opportunity to delve into each idea and give the attention each needed to let it grow/blossom.”
