Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Sonata no. 2 in b flat minor op. 36: Piano

Sheet Music & Songbooks
Subtitle Versions 1913 and 1931
Instrumentation Piano
Composer Sergei Rachmaninov
Editor Dominik Rahmer
Publisher G. Henle Verlag
Finally, G. Henle Publishers is able to offer one of Rachmaninov’s most important, most substantial piano works in a meticulous Urtext edition that does justice to the work and to the editorial difficulties it raises. Rachmaninov was unhappy with the dense textures and the length of his Piano Sonata in b-flat minor, so almost 20 years after its composition and publication he made numerous cuts and “streamlined” it – though this has been criticised by pianists down to the present day. For this reason, it is mostly the first version that is played today – or even a mixture of the two versions such as Vladimir Horowitz used to perform (albeit with the permission of the composer). This Henle Urtext edition also takes into account the autograph in the Moscow Glinka Museum. As in all the Rachmaninov editions in the catalogue of G. Henle Publishers, the fingerings here are by Marc-André Hamelin, one of the outstanding pianists of our time.
