Re: Nerves

Thank You, Zane, for this post! I would rather say that this question is quite complicated. But whether this is true or not, I think it doesn't have to be discussed. I might say the thing that would not be pleasant to hear, but it is very very true - Americans very often tend to speak about physiolo...

Re: Rachmaninoff playing in movie, does exist any?

Hello, Fernando! I've heard that such a record exists. That some conservatory teacher in Moscow showed such kind of tape to his students in 50-s, or 60-s. I've also heard that some collector in Caucasus has got such a record but keeps it for himself. I haven't seen such a record yet, but I hope it e...

Re: Rachmaninoff Sculpture at Steinway Hall

Thank You, Zane! Your words are always so inspiring!
Yes, Konenkoff made a very good sculpture, though not ideal one, but still I wish this sculpture would be placed instead of the monument in Novgorod where SVR looks more like a cowboy than himself)
