I have the same question. There are no pedal notations on this music, I downloaded from pianostreet. I have watched many Youtube performances and the pianists are using pedal action throughout. If you find out specifics, please let me know.
Thanks,

I have never understood why people consistently ask for sheet music with either fingerings or pedal markings.

Do you want your prelude to sound exactly the same as recordings that you have heard??

I think that I have; it's because said people lack sufficient imagination, diligence or both to work out their own.

My answer (which I am well aware is of necessity far from complete) is that there might well be all manner of differences between pedal markings that the composer may put in his mss. and what appears in its first or subsequent publication and as far as fingerings go it may be that the composer didn't put any in anyway. Sorabji put some fingerings in the ms. of his first published piano sonata but that was purely for his own use when practising it to pay it privately to Busoni in 1919 and, unsurprisingly, they do not appear in the publication.

Best,

Alistair
