The time has come to recall the story of the creation of the genius 2 concert of RAKHMANINOV.
This melody has no analogies – we are talking about the slow part of the second concert of Rachmaninov. The incredible power of the first part of the concert is replaced by a theme that, like steam over an evening river, fills the sound space
