Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor; Op. 18
Rachmaninoff's legendary Opus 18; often lovingly referred to as “Rach 2;” is for many the epitome of the Romantic piano concerto. Following its acclaimed premiere in Moscow in 1901; it proved to be a show-stopper around the globe; finally helping cement Rachmaninoff's international reputation as a composer. To this day; the concerto's enchanting themes and elegiac melodies in the strings are considered the trademark of Rachmaninoff; indeed; of Russian music in general. For the first Urtext edition of this pivotal work; we were able to examine the original autograph score in Moscow's Glinka Museum. Rachmaninoff's own sound recordings were also consulted. The newly prepared piano reduction ensures good playability; it accords exactly with the also newly edited orchestral score and parts. Both of these are available from Breitkopf & Härtel.
