Rachmaninov: The Complete Preludes. On this 2015 Somm release, pianist Leon McCawley offers eloquent readings of Sergey Rachmaninov's 24 Preludes, and gives the complete set a strong feeling of consistency and continuity. The brooding Prelude in C sharp minor, Op. 3/2, is the best known, though because it was published as part of Morceaux de fantaisie, it led a separate existence apart from the other preludes. Composed when Rachmaninov was 19, it quickly became his most celebrated composition around the world, as well as an encore piece that audiences clamored for at every recital, much to his chagrin

English pianist Leon McCawley performs Rachmaninov's complete Préludes, representing all 24 major and minor keys and considered among the composer's best works for solo piano. The success of his first Prélude proved to be double-edged: it became so popular that it travelled around the world and was even adapted as a jazz version in New York City. The Préludes can be played individually or as separate sets but hearing them in sequence on this album brings to light a rarely perceived but always present aspect of the great pianist and composer

Thunderous Rachmaninov from Leon McCawley. Pianistically and musically, McCawley sails through these Russian works way ahead of many of his contemporarie. ven with modern recordings by Shelley, Osborne and Ashkenazy, McCawley is among the top recommendations. He thunders through the stormy opus 23 no 2 and can then create real pianissimo intensity in the lesser-known opus 32 Preludes the Russian pianists normally reserve for themselves. There are particularly good booklet notes from Robert Matthew-Walker. Anyone choosing this new release can be sure that it is amongst the finest.

Leaving frantic and over-pressured playing to others, Leon McCawley finds a delicate emotional fervour with no lack of drama in Rachmaninov's 24 Preludes. Gramophone Magazine, May 2015. Release Date: 2nd Feb 2015. The Preludes have the charm, lyricism and nostalgic melancholy intrinsic to Rachmaninov. They can be played individually or as separate sets but hearing them in sequence demonstrates a rarely perceived but always present aspect of this great pianist composer. Leon McCawley's recordings for SOMM have received great accolades.
