Sergei Rachmaninoff Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff ( Russian : Серге́й Васи́льевич Рахма́нинов; [ 1 ] Russian pronunciation: [sʲɪrˈɡʲej rɐxˈmanʲɪnəf] ; 1 April [ O.S. 20 March] 1873 – 28 March 1943) was a Russian [ 2 ] composer, pianist, and conductor. Rachmaninoff is widely considered one of the finest pianists of his day and, as a composer, one of the last great representatives of Romanticism in Russian classical music. [ 3 ] Early influences of Tchaikovsky , Rimsky-Korsakov , and other Russian composers gave way to a thoroughly personal idiom that included a pronounced lyricism, expressive breadth, structural ingenuity, and a tonal palette of rich, distinctive orchestral colors. [ 4 ] The piano is featured prominently in Rachmaninoff's compositional output. He made a point of using his own skills as a performer to explore fully the expressive possibilities of the instrument.
