It's a very unknown, but a fantastic, breathtaking piece by the estonian composer E.Tubin. I don't think anyone on this forum has even listened to it before, but i really, really recommend to do so:

My teacher gave me this to learn for a competition in january. It's a very difficult, monumental piece, and to me it reminds Rachmaninoff a Lot, with it's big, fat chords during the first culmination, and the complex and unique harmonic structure. It's based on a folk tune, which another great estonian composer, Mart Saar, composed into a choral song "Seven Moss clad tombs". Tubin heard the melody when he was young, and later, wrote this epic ballad based on it.

It's been my teacher's favorite piece for a long time, and now, it's definitely among my top favorites as well, if not the most favorite one.

That's it. That was the purpose of this thread, to get more people familiar with this amazing piece, which deserves millions of views on Youtube, not a thousand...

Your love for Estonian composer is brilliant! And your passion for making various pieces of music heard is also awesome!

Thanks for introducing me to this piece. I'll be honest that I didn't go nuts over it, but that's my own personal preferences chiming in, so there's no reason to go further on this.

The performance is great, btw!

Again thanks.
