Biography

Rachmaninov, the last of the Romantics, conquered the public’s heart with his second piano concerto, (1901). A remarkable pianist, he received a solid musical education at the Moscow Conservatory with Siloti, (piano) and Taneïev, (composition). Impassioned by Romanticism and encouraged by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov’s first main compositions concentrated on the piano, like Chopin or Schumann, which he played perfectly.
