Rachmaninoff’s Prelude No 10 in B minor (Op. 32), was written in 1910 along with the other twelve pieces. Sergei Rachmaninoff was inspired by Arnold Böcklin’s painting Die Heimkehr (The Homecoming or The Return). This is the second work of Rachmaninoff’s to be inspired by one of Böcklin’s paintings; the other being Isle of the Dead. Rachmaninoff also stated, to pianist Benno Moiseiwitsch, for example, that this was his personal favorite among his preludes.
