Rachmaninov wrote almost all of his major works between 1901 and 1917. In the same period, Schönberg, Stravinsky, Bartók and Hindemith were paving the way for entirely new musical goals. Rachmaninov was one of the last romantics, a stranger in his time. But for piano music and playing, Rachmaninov was an innovator and a revolutionary. One of the greatest pianists of his time, he created a new way of playing the piano. An entirely new 'symphonic' concept of piano music was born. He was, perhaps, the first to exploit the fabulous percussion possibilities of the instrument to the full, to create intense effects of expression and colour.       Challenge Classics on sale
