Rachmaninov - Prélude op 23 # 5

Hi to everyone! Today I'd like to share with you my performance of this hard piece.

I have worked this piece for 4 months and I love it. The last part is magic: it has a force and an overflowing passion, and it has too a very melancholy part where the musical expressivity is a very important element.

Well, without delay here you have my performance of this piece from the musical genius Sergei Rachmaninov.

I once conquered the first page of that piece. I've lost it now though of course.
Apparently the rhythmic opening section comes from a time when machines large industrial machines were beginning to be used in factories. You can imagine a large machine when you hear the opening couple of lines can't you?
