Based on the Prelude in c sharp minor Op.3 No. 2 written in 1892 that quickly became world-famous, Rachmaninoff composed a further two collections of Preludes in the years up to 1910. These were also published as a complete volume in 1911. Based on the corresponding models by Chopin, Scriabin and their great forerunner J.S. Bach they comprise a cycle of 24 Preludes in all major and minor keys, but unlike the other ones are not organized systematically according to keys. A final highlight of late Romantic piano music, which no pianist can ignore!
