MISHKIN PHOTO OF RACHMANINOFF

Postby muspianojones » Fri Feb 17, 2006 4:13 am

Hello. We've recently acquired a b/w MISHKIN photograph of Rachmaninoff. He is seated at a Steinway grand piano which has its lid closed; on the right side of the photo, behind the piano there is what appears to be an old hanging lamp with lampshade which can be pulled up or down. There is perhaps a white sofa behind the left end of the keyboard. Does anyone know if this photo was perhaps taken in his SENAR Switzerland home? Does anyone know the year that MISHKIN took this photo?
Thanks so much. We cherish this photograph very much.

If you mean the picture that he is sitting in front of the piano with one foot on the other and is looking to right at the camera, then we're talking about the same one. It's probably in Switzerland. This photo is in the first pages of the full score of his 2nd Symphony published by Boosey & Hawkes.

I just found this. Is it?
