SENAR, the Rachmaninoff family‘s country estate on Lake Lucerne is due to become a cultural center according to the last will of his late grandson Alexander Rachmaninoff (1933-2012). To assist the transition process the Serge Rachmaninoff Foundation - entrusted with the preservation of the Villa and its historical archives - has signed an agreement with the Rachmaninoff Network to, preserve, classify and digitalize all historical artefacts. In September 2017 the Rachmaninoff Network rounded off Phase I of this ambitious project.
The Rachmaninoff Network aims to gather and spread knowledge about the life and work of Sergei Rachmaninoff. It will do so primarily by maintaining an archive, a specialist network and a public website. The Rachmaninoff Network may also initiate or support publications and activities, such as master classes, concerts, etc.
This brand new website is still under construction, but while we are building a new meeting point for Rachmaninoff enthusiasts worldwide you can already enjoy a selection of articles about Sergei Rachmaninoff's life and music, browse through Rachmaninoff's picture album, search Rachmaninoff's Concert Diary (compiled by Scott Davie) or ready a copy of The Bells – a magazine devoted to the life and art of Sergei Rachmaninoff.
