1909: Sergei Rachmaninoff makes the debut performance of his Piano Concerto No. 3, considered to be one of the most technically challenging piano concertos in the standard classical repertoire, with the now-defunct New York Symphony Society at the New Theater in New York City. Rachmaninoff is seen here in 1910 proofing copies of the concerto.
