Coulthard often commented on a central duality in her work which she identified as a contrast between sparkling lyricism and brooding introspection. The preludes reflect both and add another duality: the tension between pianistic brilliance and poetic expressiveness. They demand that their interpreters balance technical prowess with emotional insight.
