is the rachmaninoff concerto no. 3 really THAT hard? well, i haven't seen the score or heard it. but i'm not so into rachmaninoff. isn't that the "feared" piece?

don't get me wrong, i haven't played that... are you planning to? good luck...

i know one person who played concerto no.2... but it isn't who you're looking for...

:P I've played both the Rach 2 & 3 and I can tell you that the #3 is terrifyingly difficult. The notes are bad enough, but what is MORE difficult is having to maintain the stamina needed just to get to the Coda of the last movement so that the final octaves and chordal arpeggios come off with aplomb. Otherwise it's a fruitless endeavor. If you enjoy Rachmaninoff please visit my website to view videos of me performing some Rachmaninoff Preludes. https://www.JoeTownley.com  :o
