Preludes, Op 23

Preludes, Op 32

Perhaps the most romantic of all composers, Sergei Rachmaninov’s gorgeous piano concertos are among the most popular in the repertoire. But the glorious melodies often belie the fiendish difficulty of his music. Rachmaninov could famously stretch well over an octave and his technical abilities went far beyond that of most pianists.

With his “vivid skill, colour and poetry” (Guardian), Boris Giltburg is the perfect interpreter of Rachmaninov and his recording of the Complete Preludes has won high critical praise. He’ll bring all his sensitivity and panache to these exquisite miniatures – 24 pieces in each of the major and minor keys with as rich a variety of character and mood as you can imagine – beginning with the early Prelude in C sharp minor that was demanded as an encore by audiences wherever Rachmaninov appeared.

“Two of the Preludes were the beginning of my own discovery of Rachmaninov, and I fell in love, completely and hopelessly,” says Giltburg.

Come and be enchanted.
