Gilels plays Rachmaninoff Prelude Op. 23 No. 5

WOW! Attempting to learn this piece myself, I can certainly appreciate Gilels amazing ability in having mastered this piece. Truly amazing!

Emil Grigoryevich Gilels ( 1916-1985) began studying piano at the age of 5, and proceeded to be one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. It has often been said that Gilels was universally admired for his superb technical control and burnished tone.
