After critics derided his first piano concerto, Rachmaninoff fell into a deep, years-long depression. His Piano Concerto No. 2, however, was a great triumph. A work of ravishing beauty, it established the Russian composer's fame and is still one his most popular pieces. Hear this masterpiece played by the National Philharmonic, with the acclaimed Haochen Zhang on piano. A gold medal winner at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, this 26-year-old phenomenon enchants audiences around the world with his virtuosity and deep musical sensitivity. Conductor Piotr Gajewski leads the symphony at the Music Center at Swarthmore.
