One of the best-loved pianist-composers of our time, Serge Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) was the last great representative of Russian Romanticism. His music, like Tchaikovsky's, is often melancholy, with a particularly broad, rhapsodic sweep to its melodic line. With its memorable themes, lush harmonies, and captivating orchestration, the Second Piano Concerto won immediate acclaim, becoming Rachmaninoff's most enduring and popular work.
