Evening Masterwork: Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2

Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943)

Piano Concerto No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff

Evening Masterwork for September 3, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

Around the turn of the 20th Century, Rachmaninoff was coming out of an extensive period of deep depression and writer’s block, but it was completing his Piano Concerto No. 2 that more or less lifted him out of this period. It’s a work that is still seen as one of the greatest piano concertos ever written. Hear the concerto tonight at 7: our Evening Masterwork on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
