I am a 65 year old man teaching my grandsons to appreciate and hopefully one day love the classics.  When I first played Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2  for my 3 year old grandson he asked me if I was OK because of the tears in my eyes. I can't help it every time I listen to this piece my breath is short and my eyes are wet from start to finish.  Arguably the best piano concerto of all time.

Never mind who is playing, or whether it's the same person playing all of it.  Sergei Rachmaninov WROTE all of it, and it's the most drop dead gorgeous piece of piano music ever written, appropriate for any time in one's life, listenable on any device, any time of the day, any season.  If it doesn't set your heart and soul on fire you're a robot.

Concerto for Piano and Orchestra no. 2 was written after Rachmaninoff went through depression and after the period that he followed  psychotherapy sessions. The concert was dedicated to Dr. Nikolai Dahl, with which Rachmaninoff surpassed the creative blockage he entered in. Perhaps, without this depression, the concert would not have become the masterpiece. I love Rachmaninoff, the last of the romantics...

I'm a poet and I think that this music is purely  poetry in motion. One of the most beatiful piano concerts of all time.

Как это волнующе! Невозможно просто! Что он чувствовал, когда писал и играл это? Что там за внутренний мир???! Фантастика какая-то!

Rachmaninoff may have reached the depths of despair, but I think he must have also caught a glimpse of heaven. Nothing less could have inspired the unearthly beauty of this concerto.

This has got to included in the top five musical compositions that humans have ever created!  It's almost other-worldly in it's beauty, brilliance, and pathos!  I never get tired of listening to it, and I'm so glad that we have access to listening to the composer himself play it.

Just magnificent! This is my very favorite concerto-although I like the 2nd movement best-it is all so lovely-my late father loved classical music and so I appreciate it to this day! I am now 83 years old myself and I am still thrilled to hear it. Thanks.

Rachmaninoff: The  last romantic? May  be? Poor  humanity: too  much  technology and  a weak  heart?

Thank God for the original wax recordings. Nothing compares to this. Only Rachmaninoff himself can play this. Unlike someone like Richter who merely hammered the keys with a singular weight, Rachmaninoff created a 3 dimensional quality to his playing through varying the weight of each touch of the keys and changing up the pace created a graceful meandering feel to the landscape.


и еще сотни подобных восторженных впечатлений от этого шедевра всех времен и народов!!!
