38 Piano Concerto No.3
Up 4 for this, the 3rd of Rachmaninov's 6 entries. Highest position since 2007.
Rachmaninov's very large hands certainly came in useful when performing this, the most technically challenging of all the composer's four piano concertos. Rachmaninov composed the concerto in 1909 — a full nine years after the premiere of his Piano Concerto No.2. The Third is grander, fuller, and more expansive in tone and style — with the soloist stretched to the very limits of his or her ability.
