Prelude G minor Op. 23 No. 5
HN1212Regular price $15.95
As indestructible as Rachmaninoffs 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 Moscows 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 Urtexts excellent editorial and graphic quality. As with all of our Rachmaninoff editions, the fingerings were once again provided by Marc-André Hamelin.
