About

Classical music is a living tradition stretching across a millennium and this series is dedicated to presenting key strategic works from the different periods of music. This series is compiled of single CD sets and will eventually comprise 100 CDs.

Rachmaninov was one of the greatest pianists the world has ever known, and the music he wrote for the instrument is passionate, sensual and thrilling. His Second Piano Concerto was life-changing, marking the moment when the composer returned from years of severe depression confounding his critics, and establishing him as an international celebrity.
