Andante, from Sonata, Op.19 (arr. Ashu)    Sergei Rachmaninov

After studying at the Moscow Conservatory, and the disastrous premiere of his Symphony no.1, Sergei Rachmaninoff entered a creative depression that was not overcome until he got medical help in 1900.  He then quickly composed his Second Piano Concerto, often considered one of his greatest works.  His next composition was the Sonata for Cello and piano, Op.19, completed in 1901.    Ashu
