    The booming piano chords Rick plays at the end (before his song)
    are the opening of Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in C sharp minor.
    I thought you’d be interested since Rach wrote one of you intro themes.

    Aesthetes considered it a brutal piece, compared to the pretty romantic
    piano repertoire from the 18th century. Rach is still considered
    difficult and strenuous to play. He had an exceptionally wide
    handspan between thumb and pinky and often wrote in chords
    that were easy for him, but near impossible for modern players.
