Description

Only few pieces have ever won over the audience and haunted their composer as much as Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C-sharp minor. The composer virtually complained that 'people want to have it played all the time'. The present new edition of this 'highlight' of the piano music repertoire considers the differences between autograph and first edition very carefully, comparing them with the composer's recordings.

Reviews

(...) Il faut avouer que cette somptueuse édition réalisée d’après les sources par Nils Franke et Jochen Reutter, comportant les notes sur l’interprétation et les doigtés de Nils Franke est bien séduisante. (…) Les réflexions sur l’interprétation de Rachmaninov lui-même, interprétation connue à partir des rouleaux de piano mécanique mais surtout des enregistrements sur disque sont particulièrement intéressantes et pertinentes. On n’aura donc pas à regretter d’avoir ajouté cette nouvelle édition à celles qu’on peut par ailleurs posséder.
