In today’s video, we’re going to take a closer look at Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto no. 2 in C minor. In classic.fm’s annual list of the top 300 classical pieces people love, this concerto was number 2 (in 2018). It’s very well-known and well-loved!
In today’s video, we’re going to take a look at the music of Rachmaninoff – specifically, 6 favorites that I picked out. Some of these selections are among his most famous compositions, and others are ones that I personally quite enjoy.
These six selections should give you a good understanding of Rachmaninoff’s sound and style. I highly encourage you to check out the full versions of these selections.
