Olivier Messiaen: Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum
Sergei Rahmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3

“It has too many notes for me,” commented the legendary pianist Josef Hofmann. “I should have played when I was young and knew no fear,” thought Gary Graffmann. In the film “Shine” the main character David Helfgott sacrifices his youth and ultimately his mental health for it. Considered the Mount Everest for pianists, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 3rd piano concerto is tackled by Kirill Gerstein, recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award.
