Sometimes I am quite happy to find that a search is not required to select a piece for Sunday Morning Classics. From time to time a friend will post something about a piece on Facebook or some other social media or I'll overhear a great piece while out for the day. This time is firmly in the former category. A friend of mine, the ever so charming and fellow interior designer Amy Benton, posted this piece on Facebook a short time back and it was immediately obvious that it must be a Sunday Morning Classic.
The piece is Rachmaninoff's "Prelude Op.32 No.10", a wonderfully meditative piece of music. It is the perfect accompaniment for a cold winter morning....and a nice mimosa or two couldn't hurt either. Part of his Thirteen Preludes, Opus 32 is a set of thirteen preludes for solo piano, it was composed in 1910. It complements his earlier Prelude in C-sharp minor, Op. 3/2, and 10 Preludes, Op. 23, to complete the full complement of 24 Preludes in all 24 major and minor keys. Please enjoy.
P.S. Now that Blogger has seen fit to finally fix an issue with posting images I'll be posting a bit more again.
