Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninov
Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninov was a Russian composer, pianist and conductor Born into a wealthy family, Rachmaninov had his first piano lessons with his mother at the family estate. Already in his early years he showed great composing skills. But his First Symphony was a complete flop with the crit¬ics. It was largely due to the conduction of Alexander Glazunov, who disliked the piece and under-rehearsed it. This disastrous recep¬tion led to a nervous breakdown. Rachmaninov quickly recovered his confidence, the result of which was the Piano Concerto No 2. The piece was very well received and remains one of his most popular compositions Rachmaninov was also a highly respected pianist. His technical perfection and rhythmic drive were legendary and his large hands were able to cover a twelfth.
