The thirteenth Prelude, in F sharp major, brings music of the character of a nocturne in miniature, encapsulated in thirty-eight bars. It moves along slowly, as if the understated song had at times a hint of beseeching prayer about it (that is how it is heard by one of Chopin’s monographers) and at times soared into ecstasy.
