Kirill Petrenko visits Sergei Rachmaninoff's Villa Senar August 2018
Kirill Petrenko, Chief Conductor Designate of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, visits Sergei Rachmaninoff's Villa Senar, August 2018.
"I have already heard and read so much about this place and also saw pictures of it. Now that I got the opportunity to come here, making a visit was beyond question. Rachmaninoff was the music I heard with my mother's milk. Since childhood, when I was still playing the piano, I liked to play Rachmaninoff above all other piano music. I am so fond of conducting his few, but magnificent orchestral works. Rachmaninoff is the composer who makes my blood boil sooner than any Russian other composer. Maybe even more than Tchaikovsky."
