xx Rachmaninoff, Prelude, Op. 23, No. 10 in G flat
June 26, 2006, 12:43:52 AM by rachfan

Near the climax of this piece ("the point" as Rachmaninoff would say), I played a chord incorrectly, but oddly enough it almost works.  If I were to re-record the piece someday, I would certainly fix that glitch.  I would call your attention though to the last couple of lines or so of the piece.  Some pianists slow the tempo there very noticeably in order to accommodate the huge rolls, playing it ad libitum or a piacere.  The problem is that Rachmaninoff made no indication or allowance in the score to that effect.  In this version you'll hear it played up to tempo as written, although it's far more difficult to do so, even with large hands.  I should also point out that practicing that last segment repetitively can be danagerous.  To avoid any problem, I limited myself to short time intervals only.  If discomfort appears, it's time to stop!

Update: I deleted the CD cut (29 downloads) and replaced it with the original source tape recording which offers better fidelity.

Comments welcome.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
