Detailed refund arrangements will be sent to ticket holders in due course. Thank you for your support and understanding.

RACHMANINOV 24 Preludes (with two alternating pianos)
Prelude in C-sharp minor, Op. 3, No. 2
10 Preludes, Op. 23
13 Preludes, Op. 32
Rachmaninov composed the C-sharp minor prelude as a ‘free artist’ after his graduation from the Moscow Conservatory at the age of 19. Its huge success motivated the composer to continue composing a full set of 24 preludes following Chopin’s footsteps, except that Rachmaninov’s are all full-length pieces, demanding stratospheric keyboard technique and penetrating musicianship.
