GEM OF RUSSIAN ROMANTIC MUSIC. RACHMANINOFF’S SECOND PIANO CONCERTO

21okt_kvadr

Rachmaninoff surveys the vast Russian landscape. His Piano Concerto no. 2
is the symbol of rebirth of an artist who is suffering from a creative crisis.
The beautiful piece respires deeply and billows far and wide. Nielsen is
standing on the shores of the North Sea, and the scope of his symphony,
The Inextinguishable, is similar. The work, composed during World War I,
conveys enduring vitality, an essential will to live, and an impetuous spirit.
