Fifty Shades Of Grey - The Classical Album: a guide
One of the most famous piano works ever, the Rachmaninov piano concerto no. 2 will be familiar to many from the soundtrack of Brief Encounter. This second movement in particular is a romantic, stormy and intense affair, perfectly suited to Fifty Shades. This version is played by Cecile Ousset and Sir Simon Rattle with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (pictured).
