Pr lude in c sharp minor op. 3 no. 2-Pr lude C Sharp Minor Op.3 No.2 is possibly Sergei Rachmaninow's most famous late romantic Piano work and is now finally available as a Henle Urtext edition.First published in 1892 as part ofthe Piano cycle 'Morceaux de Fantaisie' Op. 3 the work soon became well known abroad in particular due to the concert tours given by the pianist Alexander Siloti Rachmaninow s cousin. Even Rachmaninow himselfwas soon no longer able to perform any concerts in America without someone in the audience crying out 'C sharp minor!' at the end. The thundering chords of the final part of this work are legendary and at the same time not asunplayable as one might have been led to believe.
