Rachmaninoff- Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Part 3

Just before the bombs began to fall in Warsaw, marking the beginning of Poland's long years of World War II turmoil, this part of Rachmaninoff's 2nd piano concerto was playing over Warsaw Radio.  In this video clip, the second movement ends at about 5:30.

Alexis Weissenberg is the pianist, and the late Herbert von Karajan conducts.

This work, for piano and orchestra, remains a favorite with concert-going audiences and lovers of awesome piano music.
