Both works would have been written around the same time, and early—but undated—publications are inconclusive.

Both in their different ways demonstrate effective and idiomatic writing for their respective soloists, which is how both may best be enjoyed. Variation 3 4'12" is marked vivace e brillante. The finale is a polonaise of the kind that puts one in mind of Weber but without, perhaps, his melodic appeal. Czerny, it seems, is more interested in dazzling his audience and challenging his soloist to ever greater heights of prestidigitation. Das Finale ist eine Polonaise, die an Weber erinnert, jedoch vielleicht ohne dessen melodischen Reiz.

He thus imparted new meaning to a genre title that at the time was often associated with improvisatory "preluding". Whereas Bach had arranged his collection of 48 preludes and fugues according to keys separated by rising semitones , Chopin's chosen key sequence is a circle of fifths , with each major key being followed by its relative minor , and so on i. C major, A minor, G major, E minor, etc. Since this sequence of related keys is much closer to common harmonic practice, it is thought that Chopin might have conceived the cycle as a single performance entity for continuous recital.
Chopin himself never played more than four of the preludes at any single public performance. As with his other works, Chopin did not himself attach names or descriptions to any of the Op. The brevity and apparent lack of formal structure in the Op. Among more recent assessments, musicologist Henry Finck said that "if all piano music in the world were to be destroyed, excepting one collection, my vote should be cast for Chopin's Preludes.
Despite the lack of formal thematic structure, motives do appear in more than one prelude. Scholar Jeffrey Kresky has argued that Chopin's Op. Individually they seem like pieces in their own right But each works best along with the others, and in the intended order The Chopin preludes seem to be at once twenty-four small pieces and one large one.

Chopin is known to have studied Bach's music, although he is not known to have performed it publicly. Harold C. Schonberg , in The Great Pianists , writes: "It also is hard to escape the notion that Chopin was very familiar with Hummel 's now-forgotten Op. Czernicheff Elisaweta Tschernyschewa , and contains widely extending basses and highly expressive and effective chromatic modulations over a rather uniform thematic basis.
Kallberg gave it this nickname for its similarities to Giuseppe Tartini 's violin sonata known as The Devil's Trill , Tartini being a likely influence on Chopin. The original signature was hastily scrawled more so than usual of Chopin's original manuscripts. Kallberg's realisation of the prelude from Chopin's almost illegible sketches goes no further than where Chopin left off.
