Daniil does Rach Three

Daniil Trifonov performs Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor opus 30 with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Myung-Whun Chung. Live recording on June 19, 2015 at the Philharmonie de Paris.


01:20 1st movement : Allegro ma non troppo

20:02 2nd movement : Intermezzo Adagio

31:09 3rd movement : Finale Alla breve


Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto is one of the most challenging works of the piano repertoire. Despite the seeming simplicity of the first theme, it requires a great virtuosity from the performers, especially for the cadenza in the first movement. After playing it for the first time in a concert on 1909, Rachmaninov himself couldn’t play any other piece, because his fingers were suffering.
