SERGEI VASSILIEVICHRACHMANINOV was only nine when he entered the Conservatoire of St. Petersburg as a pianoforte student. Three years later he was transferred to Moscow, leaving it as the winner of the Gold Medal for Composition. He was among the most brilliant pupils, both as composer and as pianist, which that famous school has turned out, and his training was associated with several members of the Russian school whose names are best known to us in this country. Immediately after leaving tho Conservatoire ho embarked on a long concert tour, appearing in all the chief towns in Europe with immediate success. Hn made his first appearance in England at a Philharmonic Concert in London, in 1899, in tho three-fold rôle of pianist, conductor, and composer. For a time he was orchestral conductor at the Imperial Theatre in Moscow, resigning that post in 1906 to go and live in Dresden ; this symphony was composed there. Since tho Russian revolution, however, ho has spent much of his time in the United States. This is tho second of his two symphonies ; it is dedicated to his former master for composition, Taneiev. Modelled pretty closely on the old classic forms, it is none the less definitely modern in expression. There are four movements, the first beginning with a slow introduction which hints at tho themes of the big Allegro to which it leads. The second corresponds to the traditional scherzo and trio, the third is a melodious slow movement, and the last alternates between robust vigour and a more serene mood. It is interrupted once by a reminder of the slow movement.
