Musician's or Publisher's Notes
The Six Morceaux are among the earliest of
Rachmaninoff's mature works. Rachmaninoff had graduated from the Moscow Conservatory
in 1892, and-only two years later-had already made a reputation for himself as
a pianist and as a composer. These little pieces reflect themes of yearning and
display some of Rachmaninoff's famous intricate passagework. The Morceaux are often considered as the
forerunners of his later 13 Preludes, Op. 32, from 1910. Michael Cansfield
