My Favorite Composer
Sergei Rachmaninov won my heart in 1981 and I am still amazed at his talent. Nothing moves me like a Rachmaninov piano concerto, especially Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and Prelude in G Minor. I'm not much of a pianist, but I was once determined to play Prelude in G Minor. So I played it very slowly, making sure to include every note. It took me almost 2 hours!!! (I think its about a 3 minute piece!) I hope you'll listen to one or all of these compositions. Try to do it when you can sit and listen...its not background stuff. (Hint: You can borrow it from the library!)
