Audio: Rachmaninoff Performs Piano Concerto 3


The Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30, composed in 1909 by Sergei Rachmaninoff, has the reputation of being one of the most technically challenging piano concertos in the standard classical repertoire. In this restored audio recording, we hear the composer performing the piece as he intended it to be played.
