Sergei Rachmaninov’s 3rd Piano Concerto unexpectedly required a trip by ocean liner. This is where the Russian pianist and composer had to practise on a silent keyboard during the long crossing to America. A few weeks later in November 1909, he brought the concerto he had composed specifically for the North American tour to its premiere in New York. Pianist Alexei Volodin, trained at Moscow’s Gnesin Academy, is widely praised for his sensitive touch, which also marks his performance of Rachmaninov’s concerto.
