“The sixth, in B minor, is doleful, pessimistic. As George Sand says: “It precipitates the soul into frightful depression.” It is the most frequently played prelude of the set; this and the one in D flat. Classical is its repression of feeling, its pure contour. The echo effect is skilfully managed, monotony being artfully avoided.”
