In 1895, Rachmaninov began work on his first substantial piece, the Symphony No. 1 in D minor. It was premiered in 1897 and was conducted by the famed musician Alexander Glazunov. The performance was a disaster and the resulting critical reception robbed Rachmaninov of his confidence to compose for some 3 years. With the help of Dr Nikolai Dahl, Rachmaninov finally regained faith in his compositional prowess and started writing his second piano concerto. This proved to be a phenomenal success. In 1901, the year the concerto premiered, Rachmaninov composed the Prelude in G minor, now No. 5 of his set of Op. 23. No.5 was actually the first prelude of the set, with the other 9 preludes being composed in 1903. The fifth Prelude encases melting lyricism (meno mosso) within a militant energy (alla macia).
