Your Saturday Andante…

…is from Henselt’s rarely-heard piano concerto, one of the great concertos that aren’t heard much anymore, here heard performed by Marc-Andre Hamelin.  The second section of this movement (starting at 2:40) gets complicated enough to require four staves.

The concerto served as inspiration and basis of Rachmaninov’s famous prelude in C# minor.
