Rachmaninov wrote his Piano Concerto No.1 when he was still a teenager. The work begins with unabashed showmanship, as a vehicle for Rachmaninov's own accomplished skill at the piano. This is a relatively playful work, sowing the seeds of a passionate musical intensity that was to burst forth over the years to come. It may be a slightly immature work but it's still an astonishingly accomplished one at that.
