I listen to Rachmaninov for fun.

English. Español. Русский.

S. Rachmaninov: Prelude op.23 n.5 in G minor (Berezovsky)

Sergei Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances Op. 45 ↘


I found the use of the alto saxophone as a soloist interesting in this context, but the setting was pretty. This was the composer’s last composition and the only one he wrote wholly in the U.S. Which probably explains the saxophone bit.

I understand he also wrote it for 2 pianos at the same time, and there is an arrangement for wind band.  I would like to do this (either on piano or wind band, since orchestra is probably not plausible at this time.)

I. Non allegro
II. Andante con moto (Tempo di valse)
III. Lente assai. Allegro vivace
