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.
The weaving lines and the glorious melody make this Prelude by Rachmaninov a remarkably beautiful and emotionally complex piece.
