Prelude in G Minor, Opus 23, No. 5
This popular Rachmaninoff prelude, edited by Murray Baylor, is based on the first editions corrected by the composer and versions published in the Soviet Union since 1949. This is a vigorous composition with a wide dynamic range in march style except for the beautifully romantic and lyrical center section. There are performance suggestions included, and this edition is nicely spaced and very readable.
