Pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff makes his Carnegie Hall debut on November 13, performing his Second Piano Concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and returns seven days later in recital with more of his own music.

By the time of his last appearance, on December 18, 1942, with the New York Philharmonic, Rachmaninoff had played Carnegie Hall nearly 100 times, premiering a number of his own works, including his Etudes-Tableaux, Op. 39, in 1920 (a US premiere), and his Variations on a Theme of Corelli (a world premiere) in 1931.
