Pianoteq’s wonderful model of the Petrof Mistral – a piano with real beauty and character, warm, thick tones in the bass and sweet, bright, shimmering tones in the treble.
I improvise on a tune that might be familiar in December!
This is my performance of Rachmaninov’s Prelude op. 23 no. 4 in D on the New York Steinway Model D new to version 7 of Pianoteq.
A glorious, melodic, dark and richly virtuoso piece by Rachmaninov. With its long, tuneful lines, filigree textures and dramatic pauses, it has an epic quality, despite being quite short.
