V. Horowitz: Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3



Vladimir Horowitz performs Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3, in D minor, opus 30, accompanied by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Zubin Mehta conducting, at Avery Fisher Hall in New York in a 1978 performance.

*********************

Rachmaninoff completed this work in 1909, and as Wikipediia notes: "The concerto was first performed on November 28, 1909 by Rachmaninoff himself with the now-defunct New York Symphony Society with Walter Damrosch conducting, at the New Theater (later rechristened the Century Theater)."
