37:33 Grigory Sokolov plays Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No.2 in C minor, Op.18 – Video 1993

This recording has been one of the most memorable Sokolov videos for me. Frustration, despair, reminiscence, nostalgia and triumph all distilled into this concerto. Highlights include the heartwarming moment from 22:23​ to 23:00​ and, of course, the majestic conclusion (starting from 34:32​).

00:12​ – I. Moderato
11:45​ – II. Adagio sostenuto – Più animato – Tempo I
23:58​ – III. Allegro scherzando
