Rachmaninov was a true Romantic. His music possesses an irresistible expressive surge to capture the listener spellbound. The Prelude in C sharp minor Op. 3 No. 2 is the first of Rachmaninov’s solo piano pieces to evoke the brooding passion that would remain a powerful force in his music for decades to come. 

Vladimir Ashkenazy (piano)
