REVIEW: Sergei Deych- "Prelude in G# Minor Op. 32 No. 12 by S. Rachmaninoff"

Posted By admin on July 6, 2015 8:29pm


Sergei Deych’s “Prelude in G# Minor Op. 32 No. 12 by S. Rachmaninoff” is a beautiful music video and a faithful tribute to the fantasy-themed music of the Romantic Era. Sergei Deych’s rendition of Rachmaninoff’s piece is rich and lively, capturing the emotion and melodicism that are typical of the Russian composer’s canon.
The video features two key figures: a girl who wakes up in the center of a mysterious forest and a nameless pianist, whose existence is even more of a mystery throughout the video. As she hears the pianist playing through the trees, the little girl searches for the player in the meadow, following the music. She simultaneously interacts with the natural surroundings of the woods.

Excellently shot, the video spends the right amount of time filming the girl in the forest and glimpses of the mysterious player in the meadow. The music in the video captures the urgency of Rachmaninoff's piece, in the girl's energetic actions and look of wonder as she searches for the source of the sound she's hearing. The end of the video delivers a wild surprise, and gives the music video a magical element, fitting for the Romantic era style of the music. “Prelude in G# Minor Op. 32 No. 12 by S. Rachmaninoff” by Sergei Deych is an official selection of the New York City Independent Film Festival and will be shown at the festival on October 12th-18th, 2015.
