Description

Felix Blumenfeld (1863-1931) was not only a well-known composer, but also a great pianist and renowned professor. One of his master pupils was Vladimir Horowitz. As a conductor of the Mariinsky Theatre, he conducted the world premiere of Scriabin's Symphony No. 3 and his 'Poème de l' Extase' as well as several operas of his teacher Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, among others. He also conducted the Russian premiere of Wagner's 'Tristan and Isolde'.
Blumenfeld's piano works wrongly fell out of favour. With this reprint of the 24 preludes, which stand up to a comparison with Chopin's 24 Preludes or works by Liszt, the publisher meets the wish of a number of pianists to make this demanding and brilliant music once again available to the public.
