Hi

I'm studying Rachmaninoff's prelude Op 3 no 2, but I have a problem in the broken chords section. In some bars, my sheet has a C1 and a B2 in the left hand, while having to play E4 on the right. The two notes on the left hand are connected by what looks like a huge square bracket. Now, I think no one with normal hands can play those three notes at the same time, so I guess that bracket means something on how to play this. What does it mean? How do I play this?

Thanks

Alex

Break it up like it's two notes, and use pedal.

Ok, I can do that, but how fast should I jump from C to B? Like an arpeggio with 2 notes? like an appogiatura?

Thanks

Like a fast arpeggio and the b should come together with the right hand melody note.

I so much love that sketch :-D But I really couldn't understand how he played it, he does it too fast for my ear. Also I think he skips some parts. Thanks for having explained below :-)

Actually, it was this video that made me want to study this piece. I had listened to it so many years ago, and in orchestral version if I'm not mistaken, that I didn't even remember it existed.
