Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Jean-Luc
Rachmaninov wrote four concerti for the instrument, but the middle two are by far the best known (and best loved) of the four. For many years, the 2nd Piano Concerto, largely thanks to its “Full Moon and Empty Arms” theme in the final movement, was more popular with audiences and listeners than the 3rd. But, thanks largely to the dramatized travails of the Australian pianist David Helfgott in the movie “Shine,” the race, as it were, is much closer. The 3rd definitely places much higher technical demands on the soloist.
