The Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18, is a concerto for piano and orchestra composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff between the autumn of 1900 and April 1901. The second and third movements were first performed with the composer as soloist on 2 December 1900. The complete work was premiered, again with the composer as soloist, on 9 November 1901, with his cousin Alexander Siloti conducting. This video contains all three movements played by Rachmaninoff.

This piece is one of Rachmaninoff's most enduringly popular pieces, and established his fame as a concerto composer.

*UPDATE
I know there has been a lot of controversies about who's playing second and third movements. Personally I got this recording from a CD which said it was Rachmaninoff who was playing, so I decided to upload it on youtube. I'm not exactly sure who's playing second or third movements but am definitely sure its Rachmaninoff who's playing the first.
