After the G minor Prelude, we hear the kind of music that we had least expected: wonderfully simple, childishly innocent, in the purity of sonorities served delicatissimo and without a hint of dramatic tension. The F major Prelude (No. 23) can be heard as a message from the world of remembrance or, as some would prefer, as a painful accent of Romantic irony.
