One of Rachmaninoff's most often performed piano preludes, this is sure success on any brass program. A march-like opening section shows off the low brass with the upper parts punctuating the melody while the flowing lyrical middle section features first the horns and then the trumpets. Interesting percussion parts add colour and excitement to this work. Set for 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones, euphonium, tuba and one percussionist, this is fun to play and is sure to be appreciated by the audience.
