Sergei Rachmaninoff: Prélude In G Minor Op. 23 No. 5

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: HN1212
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

As indestructible as Rachmaninoff’s C-sharp-minor Prélude (HN 1211) may be, it is not his only Prélude to have begun a “solo career” of its own: with its rousing rhythms and rhapsodic middle section, the famous piece in G minor certainly takes its place among them. Pianists who aren’t yet ready to tackle the complete cycle of 24 Préludes (available as HN 1200) can still enjoy Rachmaninoff “at his best” with this work.

In conjunction with Moscow’s Glinka Archives, we were able to consult the autograph sources for our Urtext edition of the Préludes, which means that this single edition thus also benefits from the Urtext’s excellent editorial and graphic quality. As with all of our Rachmaninoff editions, the fingerings were once again provided by Marc-André Hamelin.
