One thing I love about listening to Rachmaninoff is that I always know when the piece is over.

Being a musical illiterate, I have a hard time understanding how one would not know that a piece is over. Perhaps you could offer an example?

Oh, sorry. Rachmaninoff does a signature four-note rhythm at the end of his symphonies and concertos, which closely matches the pronunciation of his last name (ONE-(ee)-and-a-TWO) (RACH-man-i-NOFF).

Fun fact: did you know that Rachmaninoff became a US citizen before he died? True fact! He's buried in New York!
