Sergey Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) a great Russian-American composer and pianist, completed his 10 Preludes op.23 in 1903. They present a wide spectrum of emotions, from exuberant happiness (no.2) to restless desperation (no.7), and everything in between. For this presentation, we chose No.1 - a quiet, pensive contemplation, and No.4, which was written on the day Rachmaninoff’s daughter was born.
