RACHMANINOV: Preludes for Piano



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Spanning 45 years of the composer's life, Rachmaninov's piano music has become a staple of the repertoire. His first set of 'Preludes, Op. 23' begins a series continued in the thirteen 'Preludes, Op. 32', completed in 1910, that makes use of all major and minor keys, with the exception of C sharp minor, a key used in the famous 'Prelude, Op. 3, No. 2'. This dramatic and melancholy piece, with its ominous descending chords leading to one of Rachmaninov's most memorable tunes, rapidly became one of his most famous compositions. It is even more well-known today through its use in numerous arrangements, in music-hall sketches and in the film 'Shine'. Russian-born Eldar Nebolsin, described by Gramophone as 2undoubtedly a fluent pianist\ makes his debut for Naxos this month."
