Butch Thompson (of the Butch Thompson Trio on the early Prairie Home Companion show) "invented" a seven-finger glove into which a five-fingered pianist inserted his or her hand and gained the added reach of two prosthetic fingers beyond the pinky.
There's more than one way to accomplish the reach (at least) of Rachmaninoff.
