The World's most beautiful music: Sergei Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, 18th variation

>> Sunday, June 8, 2008

The first time I ever heard this was in the film "Somewhere in Time" starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. I fell in love with it and later, purchased a recording of the entire concerto. It is worth it to sit and listen to the work in it's entirety.

Featured here are the 18th & 19th variations played brilliantly by Russian pianist, Mikhail Pletnev. Enjoy!
