Prelude Op. 23 No. 5 in G Minor by Sergey Rachmaninov

Here is some classical music to elevate your Wednesday.

There is an interesting story behind this uplifting piece of music – Emil Gilels played this prelude at the front during World War II to raise morale of the Soviet military forces fighting in the war.

The narrator says (in Russian): “Gilels is playing at the front to remind us what the war is worth fighting for. Immortal music!”
