Rachmaninoff Études Tableaux, Op. 33

Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote the Études-Tableaux, Op. 33, in 1911. a year after completing his second set of preludes. During his life Rachmaninoff wrote two sets of Études-Tableaux (the other one being Op. 39), intended to be 'picture pieces', evoking visual stimulae. Even though Rachmaninoff did not disclose the inspiration behind each piece in public, he shared them with Italian composer Ottorino Respighi when he orchestrated the Etudes in 1930. Originally Rachmaninoff wrote nine etudes, of which six (nos. 1-2 and 6-9) were published that same year. The original number four was published as Op. 39, no. 6. As a consequence, many printings of Op. 33 omit it. The original nos. 3 and 5 were published posthumously. That leaves the set with a double numeration: the etudes originally intended to be 6, 7, 8, and 9, are usually titled 3, 4, 5, and 6.
