Prélude in G-sharp minor, Op. 32 No. 12
Amongst the pieces in Rachmaninoff's 24 Préludes there are three that are particularly popular. These are now all available as single editions: Having already published two “warhorses”, the Préludes in C- sharp minor (51481211) and G minor (51481212), Henle now publishes the Prélude in G-sharp minor, striking a quieter and more melancholy note. For their new editions of the Préludes, Henle was able to consult the autograph sources in the Glinka Archive in Moscow, enabling them to present these single editions in superb quality. The fingerings are by Marc-André Hamelin, one of the most outstanding pianists of our time and also an expert on late romantic Russian piano music.
