Re: Identity of girl in picture?

Op23#10-- The "girl" you refer to looks more like Natalia's and Sophia's mother, Varvara. And the young boy on the right closely resembles Mikhail Bakunin. If you still have Geoffrey Norris's book, check out the photo titled, "Hay-making at Ivanovka." Natalia, Varvara and Mikhail...

It's from a WWII movie soundtrack..."Suicide Squadron". The producers of the film wanted SVR to provide something along the lines of a piano concerto but were unable to convince him to do so. :wink:

Re: Hello, All

Dan-- Wow! That's a lot to digest, but your comments are full of insight that is missing from any of the analyses I've read of the 4th concerto. And you're correct, the "second" version is one I don't believe I've heard of. Interesting. I agree that the final version is more concise and ti...

Re: Have you heard the story about ...?

I don't know if the story itself is true, but Kreisler and Rachmaninof did, in fact, perform together in Carnegie Hall. A few years ago during the summer, while walking past Carnegie on my way to Patelsons, the music store on 56th Street, I noticed that Carnegie Hall had replaced their usual poster...

Re: Song lyrics and date

Op23#10, I spotted the original recordings on the Chandos label on the Barnes & Noble website, but my version is the Brilliant Classics one, which are reissued copies of the original Chandos recordings, and somewhat less expensive. My understanding is that the Chandos recordings include the tran...

Re: Song lyrics and date

Op.23#10, If you think you can afford it, buy the complete songs recorded by Howard Shelley, et. al. on ... I forget the label...it's well worth the investment if you're expanding your SVR CD collection. While I have my favorites in the early Opuses, such as the one you've mentioned, my real favorit...

Re: Igumnov, Rachmaninoff, etc. on Youtube!

Op23#10, Right you are: N. was initially in Zverev's class, but completed her studies in Igumnov's class (at least according to B-L).

Re: Igumnov, Rachmaninoff, etc. on Youtube!

StewH, I think you were right. It is just that Zverev was listed as a teacher of N., and for some reason I thought Igumnov was also. I am glad to know the facts, in case I put something incorrect in whatever I write. Opus23#10 Wait a minute! Zverev was SVR's teacher; Igumnov was Natalya's teacher.....

Well, it was B-L's book I referenced, as well as Norris's. But I'll check again!
