Rachmaninoff - Prelude Op. 23 No. 2 (Richter)
Rachmaninoff - Prelude Op. 23 No. 2 (Richter) Prelude No. 2 from 10 Preludes, Op. 23 Sviatoslav Richter, piano The Prelude in B-Flat Major, Op. 23 No. 2 is a composition by Sergei Rachmaninoff completed and premiered in 1903. This brilliant virtuoso piece is rhythmically complex, contrasting thunderous left-hand ostinato against a jagged right hand melodic line. As in Chopin's Etude in C Minor, Op. 10 No. 12, the performer must possess considerable left-hand endurance to maintain a consistent legato throughout the piece. The performance problems of the B-flat major prelude are many. Success demands that the performer have large, dextrous, and powerful hands. The left hand accompaniment requires unusal endurance, which must be maintained with perfect tempo and rhythm throughout the piece. Quoted from Geoffrey Norris' "Rachmaninoff" Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873 - 1943)

Flashbacks: Cambry plays Rachmaninoff Prelude in C# Minor
Flashbacks: Cambry plays Rachmaninoff Prelude in C# Minor This was recorded in Ganz Hall at the Chicago College of the performing Arts at Roosevelt University. I was supposed to record Rachmaninoff's Second Piano concerto with my piano professor, but we pushed it back 2 weeks. I had the hall reserved so I decided it would be cool if I just remade some of the older videos that were way lower quality. I recorded 10 videos, 3 of them are new pieces. These are probably some of the last classical music videos i'll upload for now, i'm going to be doing other music types on here, thanks for watching!
Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Vars 18-24 - Leeds Piano
Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Vars 18-24 - Leeds Piano Armen Babakhanian completes his highly energetic, flamboyant and compelling performance of the Paganini Rhapsody with Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. He makes a mistake in Variation XVIII but covers his tracks beautifully. Most people in the audience may not have noticed. However, the Jury decided to place him fifth out of the six finalists and not in the top three as I'm sure he would have been without the mistake. Howard Goodall commented in a section of the tape that got wiped for the Diana footage that it took emmence courage and determination to finish that piece after an embarassing moment in the spotlight. You can see a flicker of disappointment in the virtuoso's eyes when he finally finishes. This is one of my favourite television clips of classical music I've ever seen. I recorded it in September 1996, while at University.
