    Rachmaninoff's 2nd String Quartet was written around 1896. The work was never performed in his lifetime and he didn't write out the parts but in 1947 the Moscow Conservatory discovered the pieces and published them. Two movements were published as a result - the first an allegro moderato and the...

    Rachmaninoff made two attempts to write a string quartet but both works were unfinished with only two movements written for both. The first movement, Tchaikovskian Romance from the first quartet was written when Rachmaninoff was still a student in Moscow, aged a mere 17. The Scherzo is light...

    Hi! I've been learning to play piano for two years now, mostly by myself. I didn't learn the basics, I just went straight for it, and started learning random pieces that I enjoy listening to, most of which aren't necessarily for beginners. The first thing I learned was a part of Bordodin's...

    I wanna know what your favorite interpretation of this concerto are. Yesterday I was listening many versions, many pianists, including Rachmaninoff himself, was a bit surprised by his tempo of the first movement, because usually pianists tend to play it in a bit slow motion style :), perhaps it...

    A thread looking at particular questions concerning composers active in the first 3rd or even half of the 20th century. I'm interested in those who managed to either cling to an idiom little removed from late romanticism(in the harmonic sense, anyway), or who found a comfortable spot just...

    I had trouble saying Celibidache in fact when I first learned of him. I said celeri-dash-ee which was wrong. I know that Rachmaninoff is another name people get wrong... I even heard Ratch-man-nee-nog once over the phone. Facepalm. Any others that people get wrong?

    Hi there :) This is the first time I post on this forum, so please forgive me if I'm not obeying any house rules! I'm looking for my next piano piece (as a soloist) to contrast Rachmaninoff's C sharp prelude for an upcoming competition. Any suggestions? (Preferable baroque) Also, please...

    Sergej Vasiljevitsj Rachmaninoff, born on April 1st 1873 in Novgorod, was the last composer of the era of Russian Romanticism and one of the best pianists of his time. He was best known for his second and third piano concerto. Unforunately, he received a lot of negative criticism throughout his...
  14. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    About five minutes into this Rachmaninov documentary on YouTube there's a choral piece playing in the background of a Russian Orthodox Church service. It sort of reminds me of some music from the movie Equilibrium, but I was wondering whether anyone reading this would have a clue about where I...

    Hello all. You can just call me Edmond. If you are a fan of classic liturature, than you can guess that that's not my real name. :D Anyways, after many years of wandering though the internet, I've finally thought of what should have been obvious: there had to be a good classical music forum...

    Hello! I'm 29, and although I've been into music all my life, I've only recently started listening to classical. I've come to classical through a rather circuitous route: from The Divine Comedy (Neil Hannon's band), who I learned was influenced by Michael Nyman, my growing appreciation of whom...
