Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (1 April 1873 - 28 March 1943) was a pianist, composer and conductor, and is considered one of the finest pianists of his day.
Josef Slavanski attended one of Rachmaninoff's last concerts in 1943. Josef was particularly moved when Rachmaninoff finished with 'Flight of the Bumble Bee'. Josef considers it the best piece of music he has ever heard.
