    This Prelude in C sharp minor became once incredibly popular, and wherever he went Rachmaninov was asked to play it so often that he grew to hate it. Eventually he refused to play it any more. But it is a wonderful piece nonetheless even though it is not often played the way he wrote it.

    Is this the "Rachmaninov had big hands" video?

    EDIT If so, it's hilarious but unoriginal, apparently.

    Yep!

    My favorite line: That's all that's little!
