About this playlist

In his early 20s, Sergei Rachmaninov fell into a period of depression and suffered a creative drought after his First Symphony was mercilessly slashed by critics. His triumphant Second Piano Concerto, composed three years later, tells a story we can all relate to: an even brighter sun shines behind the clouds and our failures only make us stronger. Personal and cathartic, the pieces gathered in this playlist are emotional crescendos that celebrate the incredible fruitfulness of life’s trials, whose overcoming gets us walking taller. Expect powerful dynamics, poignant vocals, plenty of brass and a rush of endorphins that will leave you wowed for some time afterwards. Browse through the concerts on the right-hand side of your screen once you’re done listening to keep the magic going.
