Prelude No. 23 is based on a four-measure long musical idea made with arpeggios and a short melodic motive. Harmonically, Chopin uses sonorities like added sixths and extensions like the ninth, eleventh and thirteen. The harmonic language is closer to an impressionistic than to a romantic style. The Prelude ends with a dominant seventh chord.
