hahahaha....wow!!! i'm dieing from laughing so hard, that was GREAT! Rachmanninoff had huge hands! he went from C past the next C to A so it was just short of 2 octave reach!

Byt the way, mozart didn't' actually compose bond's music so to speak, but he did write the harmonic progressions which might have been taken from his song by the composer of the Bond music ^_^

Honestly, Rach'ys prelude in C-sharp minor must be one of the greatest pieces ever.. I love it, it got so much feeling in it

I wish there was actual footage of Rachmaninoff playing. I've only saw a short and rare documentary footage of him on Youtube. It doesn't actually show him playing piano, though.
