Prelude in C Major / F Minor (Summer Rain)

This is my first proper classical composition.  I stumbled across this chord progression while studying some different piano chords and was very moved by it.  I found myself playing it over and over again.  As a gentle rain storm set the mood outside, I spent several hours piecing the composition together into its finished form.

The piano part is composed of two separate parts that were combined together.  It modulates back and forth between C Major and F Minor every two measures which creates an emotional kick.

I’m very proud this piece and find myself coming back to it again and again to help me relax and to put my mind in a good place.  I hope it has the same effect for you too.
