Can this be true?

Visible to anyone in the world

I watched a YouTube video which said Rachmaninov wrote 7.5 x 1018 notes during his lifetime as a composer. Could this be true?

Hi, Richard.

I watched the YouTube, the 12 easiest Bars in Rachmanioff are a pianist’s nightmare, and it says this number. The reason seems that each piano player of his notes slightly changes from the original. But I couldn’t catch the exact reason of this number, sorry.
