The 24 Preludes, Op. 28, are a set of 24 short pieces for the piano, one in each of the twenty-four keys, written by Frédéric François Chopin (1810 – 1849). It was originally published in 1839.
This piece, No. 20, in C minor, has been dubbed the "Funeral March" by Hans von Bülow but is commonly known as the "Chord Prelude" due to its slow progression of quarter note chords.
The prelude was originally written in two sections of four measures. Chopin later added a repeat of the last four measures at a softer level, with an expressive swell before the final cadence.
Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873 - 1943) used this piece as his inspiration for Variations on a Theme of Chopin, a set of 22 variations in a wide range of keys, tempos and lengths
