The purpose of this thesis recital is to focus on an integral perfornance of Chopin's op.28 prelude cycle which consists of a CD of the recital and an analytical paper on the set. The point of the analysis concentrates on two-part and three-part formal strategies and the ways in which these divisions are motivated by features left incomplete in the first formal section. This sense of incompletion, always causing a formal division, leads to the second attempt scenario and its successful outcome. Additionally, there is an introductory discussion on the title issues and several remarks about the Prelude throughout the history until its transformation and independent status which it owes to Chopin.
