Album Notes
24 Preludes for Solo Banjo, celebrates the long-standing tradition of classical musicians writing
pieces in all major and minor keys to showcase an instrument’s versatility and capability in all
keys as well as the breadth of tonal palette and timbres each various key has to offer. JS Bach,
Chopin, Shostakovich and many others have written 24 preludes in this tradition. The Banjo —
being a relatively new instrument (early 1800’s) and relegated almost exclusively to folk music
since that time, with a brief foray into popular classical music — has not inherited the same legacy
that traditional classical instruments have. These solo banjo preludes are written in a mostly early
20th-century, at times almost neo-classical style. I hope that more composers continue to write for the banjo in this way to create a new 21st century
repertoire for this beautifully unique and versatile instrument!
—Adam Larrabee, 2018
