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.
Pictures like this one:
and this - the church where Rachmaninoff requiem service took place:
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
Any remarks or questions on the life of Sergei Vasilyevich Rachmaninoff can be posted here.
