Re: Chronology of Rachmaninoff's performances

Unfortunately the list of concerts starts only from 1909 and is structured in the following way: for example Season 1909/10, then the cities and towns where the concerts took place (according to dates), and then the whole list of pieces that Rachmaninoff performed as a pianist as one list for a seas...

Re: NEW MOVIE ABOUT SVR?

Thank you, dear Cameron, for your message and for the good words that you say! Lucky you to have such a wonderful story of proposal. I wish I knew what place exactly it was in Hermitage.

Re: NEW MOVIE ABOUT SVR?

I know there could be a true movie about Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky music, but the director should be an impressionist himself, like Claude Monet! Like Alfred Sisley! If such a director is already born than we all will see a true movie, a true piece of art about Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky and Si...

Re: NEW MOVIE ABOUT SVR?

:P What movie there can be about let's say Tchaikovsky? What biographical data could tell us more of his talent than the simple record of his Season's pieces? That are so full of nature, that have so many sounds that it seems that they come not from the world of sounds but from the world of sun, sun...

Re: NEW MOVIE ABOUT SVR?

I've heard about it kind of two years ago... I wish I knew what happened next. Though I hesitate that movie-men can do a really good movie about Rachmaninoff - it is even more difficult than to make a good sculpture ... are there any good sculptures of SVR? No. The movie is even more difficult to ma...
