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.

Now....

Rachmaninoff Prelude in B flat Op23 No2

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

BRAVO!!
