FIRST EVENT

03 February 2022, 5.30pm, Aula Maxima, UCC

Rachmaninoff: Melancholy, hypnosis and triumph

David and Keith kick off 2022 with some fireworks! They will discuss and perform sections of Rachmaninoff’s renowned Piano Concerto No 2. Possibly one of the most-loved pieces ever written, it’s been used in multiple blockbuster films and as the basis for popular songs like All By Myself.

DID YOU KNOW? Rachmaninov was struggling with depression and this concerto came after three years of therapy: he dedicated it to his therapist!
