RACHMANINOV FOR SATURDAY

“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: Chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.” – Aristotle
 
A very busy Saturday, which nevertheless was welcome as it was not related to work. Last week was extremely hectic at work including the trip to Brisbane, which took a lot out of me. Saturday evening was wonderful as usual and there is one piece of music that summarises it…
 
Here is the Sergei Rachmaninov, Piano Concerto No 2, with Hélène Grimaud, and the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra conducted by Claudio Abbado. Russian romanticism at its very best wonderfully interpreted.
