Sergei Rachmaninov: Prelude in C-sharp minor, Op.3 No.2 (Redux)

I discovered this piece in high school around 1972, and I fell in love with it, as described in my earlier post.  I’m reblogging it today because a friend sent me a funny version of it on youtube. I hope you enjoy the comedic update as well as the astounding original.

    I love this prelude, I played it a few years ago and the truth is that you never need more than an octave – thank goodness otherwise I’d be in trouble!! The video is hilarious though lol, thanks 🙂

    I felt the same way when I played it in college. Even though it doesn’t go past an octave often, you feel like you need a few extra fingers anyway.
