THE EVEREST OF CONCERTOS
One of the greatest pianists of all time, Sergei Rachmaninov, was born almost exactly 150 years ago. The composer, who fled to the United States after the Russian Revolution, wrote piano concertos that exude romantic pathos and virtuosity, of which the Third is perhaps the most iconic. The Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, whose interpretation has been hailed as impassioned, poetic and muscular, scales the work that is known as the Everest of concertos.
