Sergei Rachmaninoff: 24 Préludes

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: HN1200
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Based on the Prélude in C sharp minor Op. 3 No. 2 written in 1892 that quickly became world-famous, Rachmaninoff composed a further two collections of Préludes in the years up to 1910. These were also published as a complete volume in 1911.

Based on the corresponding models by Chopin, Scriabin and their great forerunner J.S. Bach they comprise a cycle of 24 Préludes in all major and minor keys, but unlike the other ones are not organised systematically according to keys.

A final highlight of late Romantic Piano music, which no pianist can ignore.

      Lovely clean edition. Until the arrival of this, I have been playing from an online sheet music download; a proper printed edition is far preferable.
      Although this edition includes some fingerings (by Marc-Andre Hamelin) there are surprisingly few (or at least in the preludes I have been playing)
