Performance comparison times range from 3-4 minutes with Gilels, Richter and Berezovsky as benchmarks. This is a little slow (5 minutes). I don't make the central big left hand broken chord (even Berezovsky appears to "cheat" on that one) and there are several cosmetic errors, but all in all its a 'together' performance and I will present another faster version in the future.

I am currently finishing preparations on Liszt Mephisto Waltz 1 and the Racokzy March. They will be presented soon.


Rachmaninoff Prelude in B flat Op23 No2
Given enough time, I'll play anything. Given all time, I'll play everything.

Titanic in scope! The piano's tonal beauty and the professional recording quality further enhance this magnificent performance.
