As a pianist, I’m thrilled to introduce you to a legendary pianist and composer in today’s episode — the first of 2 in a series — about Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Both hearing and playing his piano music gets me all in my feelings, and I think you’ll understand what I mean after you listen to some of his very expressive music in our episode today. I hope you enjoy the breathtaking beauty of his lyrical compositions as you learn about the ups and downs of this composer’s life!
