Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Minor, Op. 30 – I. Allegro ma non tanto
Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 is a complex, epic narrative that moves from a simple opening melody to the triumphant apotheosis at its conclusion. The composer ingeniously links motifs, melodies and at times whole sections between the movements, unifying the concerto into a single overarching storyline.
