Russian pianist, composer, and conductor Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) is regarded as one of the most important and influential composers of the twentieth century. He composed his Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27 in 1906-1907. Rachmaninoff's second symphony premiered in St. Petersburg on February 8, 1908, with the composer conducting. Originally, the work was dedicated to Sergei Taneyev, a Russian composer and teacher who studied under Tchaikovsky. The Second Symphony is one of Rachmaninoff's most popular works. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is conducted for this recording by Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons, who served the orchestra from 2004 until 2015.
