New monument of Rachmaninoff in Novgorod!

Postby Marianne » Tue Jun 16, 2009 4:16 am

Sunday was a perfect day!

It took us two hours and a half to drive by car from Saint-Petersburg to Novgorod.

At first there was a requiem service dedicated to Rachmaninoff in the main Novgorod church of Saint Sofia :

I made lots of photos and videorecords, it will take me a couple of days to make them look perfect for you to have a look.

After that we had a chance to visit the Rachmaninoff Music center - there are two exhibitions there - one made of rare photos and newspapers. The other one - Rachmaninoff's image in pictures and sculpture. I was allowed to take pictures, so you can imagine how happy I am. :D

Pictures like this one:

Rachmaninoff and Bunin (in the center, one of our best writers, Nobel Prize laureate)
and so on...

The day was a bit rainy at first but later, in the middle of the ceremony and till the end of the day - the sun, the perfect sun...

Just look what an amazing view on the fields around Novrogod:

In city one feels such a lack of such pure bursting out nature
