Rachmaninoff Etude-Tableau no. 2, Op. 33

Since my wonderful Web Designer made it possible, I have uploaded an mp3 file that I recorded in 2012. I can’t believe I actually played this, because it involves a very awkward left hand part. Sergei Rachmaninoff had very large hands, and took advantage of that fact often. I think this is one case where it was easy for him, but very awkward for mere mortals like me.

Anyway, I also had the advantage of being able to do multiple takes, and if I didn’t play something right the first time, I could try it again. Then combining them until I was happy. This is Rachmaninoff’s Etude-Tableau No. 2 from the Op. 33 set. One of my favorite pieces.

If you don’t like this, then blame my web designer! Just kidding— I take full responsibility!
