Description

I first heard the Rachmaninoff Prelude in G minor when my brother, (Dr) Rod Paton, used to play it on the piano. The martial sound of the opening theme caught my imagination, and I knew then that this piece would sound magnificent if played by a brass band. If you like the music of Rachmaninoff, then you will love this piece. That spectacular sound that we all know, with busy, melodic bass lines, and a middle section in his well known ‘romantic’ style – (I could already hear the euphonium playing those rippling arpeggios). In response to the enthusiasm for this magnificent piece, I have lightheartedly commented that maybe he wrote it for brass band, but there wasn’t one available, so he did it for piano instead!
