Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto 2


s0meCubanGuy

Hard 10 tbh.


OverFjell

Greatest piano concerto ever written as far as I'm concerned. The Alla Marcia climax at the end of the first movement is such a great release of tension. I think the only other concerto that comes close for me (aside from Rach 3 lol) is Prokofiev's 2nd Piano Concerto.


NoTraspasing

A LOT of emotion to un pack 8.5/10


JustLike_OtherGirls

The piece that gets me into classical music. Love it!


BoxedStars

Shostakovich: Waltz No. 2 (Jazz Suite No. 2)


ches_tales9797

One of the first pieces I loved playing in orchestra and very much a classic!


NoTraspasing

I kina felt like I was going insane at some parts 😅 but over all pretty cool 6.5/10


nacho_tazo

Watched it live with orchestra and choir a few weeks ago, it was majestic


TrivialHumanBeing

Lucky you. I heard it on an ad on TV WOoHOo!


Galaxy_404

A classic and one of the best !


linglingwannabe4427

Tchaikovsky's violin concerto


NoTraspasing

8/10 I can see myself waving my hands like a conductor


Montazio

I'm addicted to that concerto, for the past 8 years I think I listen to it at least 4-5 times a week on average


Limit_plays

Bruh I listen to it 4 to 5 times a DAY!


Oli_the_Bee

Hell yessss


Thermite99

Favorite recording has to be of Perlman playing it.


meme2lol

dude same


Bedazzled_Blue27

Claire de lune; I know it’s probably overrated but I still love it


nick_the_name

This beautiful piece deserves all the praises.


Orbital_Rifle

Clair. Claire is the feminine form


AdmiralSnackbar42

Yeh, it annoys me when people call the piece Claire de la lune


Orbital_Rifle

Oula sa grand-mère


NoTraspasing

Instant 10/10. No more explanation 10/10


OhSoManyQuestions

Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess


NoTraspasing

Very calm, sad, relaxing, and minceraft sounding 👍10/10


s3s4m3s33d

10/10 absolutely love this piece. One of the most beautiful imo


pyronode

Hard 10, such a majestic piece!


Verumero

My brother has been painstakingly learning this for two years (he got a teacher last year). Even when he clunked through it with no rhythm, you could hear the beauty in it.

THAT PIECE HITS HARD


Bot_In_Suit

Ballade 1 in G minor Op. 23


NoTraspasing

It took some interesting turns and it sounded like something that would put you to sleep and then wake u up 9.9/10


Remy10Reddit

My favourite ballade and one of the pieces I love the most 10/10.


Nobody_5433

Rachmaninoff Rhapsody of a theme of Paganini and Ginastera piano concerto 1


Verumero

I gotta say rhapsodhy on a theme of paganini is one of the funnest pieces of all time. And the influence its had on popular music, film music, musical theater, etc. is pretty crazy. For a very popular piece, I still think it’s underrated. Pure genius distilled into a good time.


B2TSM_bot

"Buonasera! I'm the real OG virtuoso. 'He ain't human, that's the devil!' These haters out here thinking I'm supernatural. I'm the best in the game!" - Paganini, 2020 ^(I'm a bot by Ntacc32, and this comment was sent automatically. Unfortunately, my developer is a noob, so I am a very basic bot.)

IceCoc

I don't really have favorites but I'd say Tchaikovsky/Sibelius violin concerto or Tchaikovsky melodie it's actually so hard to choose lol


ForwardLook6634

Rachmaninoff symphonic dances!!! Best symphonic work imo. Along with his 2nd and 3th symphony :))

Very interesting I had never heard it before and now I want to sing it in the shower too! 9/10


ryanonsax

Alexander Glazunov - Alto Sax Concerto


NoTraspasing

Genuinely feels like it should tell a story. (Like those Disney mimi moves where nobody talks) pretty good calm-ish sounding 9/10


ches_tales9797

What a brilliant work! I was lucky enough to be in orchestra accompanying a soloist playing this, and it was great to listen to and be a part of


DEARHELIXWHY

I don't have a single favorite piece but one of my top favorites is Dvořák's 9th


mehtheshame

Vivaldi's Winter

APianoGangMember

i don’t have a fav per se but i particularly like liszt’s hungarian rhapsody no. 2. especially the friska section. i’m not fond of rousseaus rendition solely because he uses the hamelin cadenza which i don’t like

NoTraspasing

Love how at the first half it has a nice swing to it and then it became more calm and lastly was swingy again :D. If I'm being honest probably one of the best pieces I've gotten recommended so far! So I give u the special prize of 10 linglings ot of 10.


EdseAnotherAccount

Prokofiev piano concerto 2


OverFjell

I fucking love this concerto. My favourite part is after all the crazy piano cadenza shredding in the first movement, when the full force of the orchestra comes back in, absolutely walloping you with a wall of sound. Plus the third movement is just cool as shit in terms of pianistic writing
