Krystian Zimerman plays Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 Movement II. Adagio sostenuto – Più animato conducted by Seiji Ozawa and BSO.

I was listening this piece today in a quiet hospital room at 10:00 after 10 days of immense physical and emotional discomfort without knowing this

-> “Compounded by problems in his personal life, Rachmaninoff fell into a depression that lasted for several years. His second piano concerto confirmed his recovery from clinical depression and writer’s block, cured only by a course of hypnotherapy.”.
