Sergei Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 3 in a Op. 44

Sergei Rachmaninoff was a quintessential pianist-composer, and because of that his concert works that did not involve piano often flew under the radar. One such work was the Symphony No. 3, his final symphony, which was commissioned and premiered by the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1936, which was often neglected by other orchestras because the composer was so busy prospering as a pianist.
