Sergei Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2

Sergei Rachmaninoff plays from the first movement of his Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, opus 18, with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Leopold Stokowski conducting; this is from a 1929 recording of RCA Victor. The complete work was first performed, with the composer as soloist, on November 9, 1901; Rachmaninoff's cousin Alexander Siloti was the conductor.



  1. Rachmaninoff really plays his music well. He understands it almost as accurately as Horowitz does.

  2. It's true that some think Horowitz a better interpreter of Rachmaninoff.
