From Rachmaninoff to Your Home

The Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no 2 is one of the best known works of this great Russian composer. It was composed in late 1900 and early 1901, and first performed as a complete piece for piano and orchestra in November of 1901.

Though you may not have a full orchestra in your home, you can still experience the thrill of performing Rachmaninoff’s Concerto no 2 in the privacy of your own home. Sheet music for the piano parts of this towering work is readily available. Take up the challenge of re-creating this three movement work, from its bell-like tolling beginning to the fast coda at the end – the foundation for many recognizable modern works, as well as a favorite piece for movie soundtracks. You can practice on your own, then amaze your friends when you deliver a polished performance on your home piano. Pick up this sheet music and start playing.
