Rachmaninoff and the conductors

Postby Marianne » Sun Feb 06, 2011 8:52 am

Since on google images I've came across the photo where only Bruno Walter was pointed, though SVR behind him was obviously playing the piano, I am obsessed by the idea to find all the photos of every single conductor with whom Rachmaninoff played... And not only for the sence of that, but also because we can search for those conductor's works on youtube and get to know the spirit of the epoch!

Here is the list that I've got

1) Bruno Walter
2) Sir Henry Wood
3) Willem Mengelberg
4) Dimitri Mitropoulos
5) Gustav Mahler
6) Eugene Ormandy
7) Leopold Stokowski
8 ) Josef Stránský - watch?v=AngAQJ9OkOg
9) Ernest Ansermet
10) Georg Høeberg
11) Wilhelm Furtwängler
12) Serge Koussevitzky
13) Sir Thomas Beecham
14) Ossip Gabrilowitsch
15) Modest Altschuler
16) Henri Rabaud
17) Georg Lennart Schnéevoigt
18) Richard Hageman
19) Issay Dobrowen - watch?v=6xjIUIb1fnU
20) Walter Damrosch

to be continued...

Every conductor deserves a separate topic...
It would be great to know - what of these names are familiar to you, whose records do you know and love most of all, or any interesting facts about them!

Don't forget Dr. Frederick Stock of Chicago - he was one of Rachmaninoff's conductors too. Rachmaninoff performed with Safonov as well as Siloti. The list is probably pretty extensive.

I.e. in 1909 and in 1932
