Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (Russian: Серге́й Васи́льевич Рахма́нинов, tr. Sergéj Vasíl'evič Rahmáninov; IPA: [sʲɪrˈɡʲej rɐxˈmanʲɪnəf];[nb 1] 1 April [O.S. 20 March] 1873[nb 2] – 28 March 1943) was a Russian pianist, composer, and conductor of the late-Romantic period, some of whose works are among the most popular in the classical repertoire. He is regarded as one of the major composers of the 20th century.

Born into a musical family, Rachmaninoff took up the piano at age four. He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1892 and had composed several piano and orchestral pieces by this time. In 1897, following the critical reaction to his Symphony No. 1,
Rachmaninoff entered a four-year depression and composed little until
successful therapy allowed him to complete his enthusiastically received
Piano Concerto No. 2 in 1901. After the Russian Revolution, Rachmaninoff and his family left Russia and resided in the United States, first in New York City.
Demanding piano concert tour schedules caused his output as composer to
slow tremendously; between 1918 and 1943, he completed just six
compositions, including Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Symphony No. 3, and Symphonic Dances. In 1942, Rachmaninoff moved to Beverly Hills, California. He acquired U.S. citizenship a month before his death from advanced melanoma.

Early influences of Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Balakirev, Mussorgsky,
and other Russian composers gave way to a personal style notable for
its song-like melodicism, expressiveness and his use of rich orchestral
colors.[3]
The piano is featured prominently in Rachmaninoff's compositional
output, and through his own skills as a performer he explored the
expressive possibilities of the instrument.
