The Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18, is a concerto for piano and orchestra composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff between the autumn of 1900 and April 1901. The second and third movements were first performed with the composer as soloist on 2 December 1900. The complete work was premiered, again with the composer as soloist, on 9 November 1901, with his cousin Alexander Siloti conducting. This piece is one of Rachmaninoff's most enduringly popular pieces, and established his fame as a concerto composer.

Piano Concerto No. 2, 2nd movement. One of the best-loved Pianist-Composers of our time, Serge Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) was the last great representative of Russian Romanticism. His Music, like Tchaikovsky´s, is often melancholy, with aparticularly broad, rhapsodic sweep to ist melodic line. With ist memorable themes, lush harmonies, and captivating Orchestration, the Second Piano Concerto won immediate acclaim, becoming Rachmaninoff´s most enduring and popular work. ((Tempo and Dynamics are in the Original n different; this is my own idea))).
