This prelude was written in 1910 during a period that many people consider to be the pinnacle of Rachmaninoff's composational career. It is one of a set of 13 preludes and is one of the more popular of the set. All 13 of these preludes were written during a period of 19 days.
The first time I encountered this piece was during a talent competition I had entered in 1998. I was just 18 years old then, and a girl about the same age as I played this piece. I really enjoyed it but never actually attempted to learn it until quite recently. In fact, I didn't spend very much time studying this one (as is probably apparent in my performance). I hope you enjoy it, nonetheless. Oh, and if you were wondering, I was fortunate to take first place in the competition with Chopin's Revolutionary Etude (Op. 10 No. 12). That one is always a crowd-pleaser.
