Rachmaninov Prelude in G Op 32 no 5
The Rach preludes stand as one of the enduring towers of classical piano repertoire, and they hold a solemn place in my heart. The G major is very touching. The gentle undulations in the left hand ebb and flow with the constancy of waves at sea, setting the mood for pensive reflection of all the serenity that engulfs me while alone in my boat. Hearkens to the etude-tableaux in a minor “sea and seagulls”.
