|Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov at the piano|
|The Russian State Orchestra performed in Hong Kong|
It's the 1917 version, as Rachmaninov had written his first piano concerto when he was 18, but revised it in 1917 as the Bolshevik Revolution was happening.
The finish culminated into quite the flourish. Conductor Kristjan Jarvi doesn't like to break too long between movements, going one after the other and before you know it, the piece is over.
|Denis Matsuev is considered a Rachmaninov expert|
