The Rachmaninoff Society

The composer, pianist, and conductor Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff is considered the last in the great tradition of Russian romantic composers. He was born Apr. 1 (N.S.), 1873, at his family's estate, Semyonovo, in the Russian province of Novgorod. At about the age of 5, he began piano studies with his mother. In 1882 he entered the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, but he transferred 3 years later to the Moscow Conservatory. There he studied under the rigorous supervision of Nikolai Zverev, through whom he met many of the most important Russian composers of the time. Tchaikovsky , especially, exercised a major influence on him. He graduated in piano in 1891 and in composition with the Great Gold Medal in 1892.

    7. Sergei Rachmaninoff
    Sergei Rachmaninoff 18731943. Brilliant composer, talented pianist,and control-demanding conductor, Sergei Rachmaninoff was born
    Sergei Rachmaninoff
    Brilliant composer, talented pianist, and control-demanding conductor, Sergei Rachmaninoff was born on a family estate near Novgorod, Russia. His father and grandfather were already very good amateur pianists, thus Sergei followed in their footsteps, as he began piano lessons at a very young age. Although he was born with that musical exposure, he was expected to go on to military school for a career there. At the age of nine, Rachmaninoff traveled to St. Petersburg due to his father's ill judgement with money, as he lost the family fortune. There, Sergei entered as a scholarship student at the conservatory. However, Rachmaninoff was not a good student, as he often cut class and wandered about the grand city, sometimes even spending his time at the skating rink. His grandmother always took him to church services, where he admired the singing and the tolling of the bells. Even though he deeply enjoyed music, his teachers foresaw no such relation for him with music. Later, however, when he entered the Moscow conservatory at fifteen, he discovered new horizons when he added composition to his piano playing. At Moscow, Rachmaninoff lived at the home of his teacher, the great Nicolai Zverev, who supervised every detail of his students' lives. There, Rachmaninoff met and played for many giant figures of Russia, including Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky , who became his musical idol.

    Sergei Rachmaninoff. After various failures and successes in his trainingyears, Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote his First Symphony in 1895.
    Sergei Rachmaninoff Sergei Vasil'yevich Rachmaninoff had a rough chilhood. His father was a drunk and gambler, wasting his wife's estate and then abandoning the family. With this foundation of instability and being unasved, Rachmoninoff had a hard time adjusting to life as a young man. His extrodinary talent as a pianist is what brought him fame that no doubt would not have existed otherwise. After various failures and successes in his training years, Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote his First Symphony in 1895. It was met with severe criticism which brought on "the composer's worst crisis of psychic distress and lethargy..." (1). He thus entered a time when he could neither write nor play music. He was then persuaded to visit a certain Dr. Nikolai Dahl, specialized in hypnosis. In 1900, from January to April, Rachmaninoff daily "visited the doctor's somberly velvet-draped chambers. From the quiet, Dahl would repeat over and over: 'You will begin to will work with great facility...the music you write will be good music.' "(1) What this produced was Rachmaninoff's famous Second Piano Concerto . Rachmaninoff said later, "Although it sounds incredible, this cure really helped me. I began to musical ideas began to stir within me - far more than I needed for my concerto."(1)

    Sergei Rachmaninoff
    Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the finest pianists who ever lived. He was helped, no doubt by his pair of huge hands. He was born in Oneg (near Novgorod) on April 1, 1873 and he died in Beverly Hills on March 28, 1943. Until the death of his friend Scriabin, Rachmaninoff had only played his own music in recitals. After Scriabin died in 1915, Rachmaninoff played his friend's music at a series of recitals, but in a completely different style from Scriabin. Many were outraged, but a young Prokofiev came backstage and told Rachmaninoff that he played very well. Rachmaninoff asked: "And you thought I'd play badly?" After that Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev didn't speak for years. Rachmaninoff was an early wunderkind - he entered the Moscow conservatory when he was 14. He won medals for his piano playing, and he was very serious about composition early in his life. During preparations for performance of the students' final projects, the professor in charge freely cut and altered the students' compositions, but Rachaminoff not only refused to make any changes, he even had the nerve to point out the errors in the professor's conducting. In 1892 he wrote the famous Prelude in C-sharp minor. There is a story that the reason this prelude became so popular is because Rachmaninoff forgot to copywright it, so all the publishers had a field day with it. His first symphony, on the other hand, was very badly received. Afterwards he could not write any music for three years. He was treated by a hypnotic specialist, Dr. Nikolai Dahl, who repeated over and over: "You will write your concerto... You will write your concerto... You will work with great facility... The concerto will be of excellent quality." Rachmaninoff did write a concerto, finishing it in 1901, and it became his most popular work. In the years before World War I Rachmaninoff wrote many excellent songs, including Vocalise, and extremely challenging piano piece, "tailored to his own spectacular hands."

    A Lifetime in Music Sergei Bertensson and Jay Leyda, with the assistance of Sophia Satina. With a new Introduction by David Butler Cannata An indispensable and captivating document, now back in print!

    T hroughout his career as composer, conductor, and pianist, Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) was an intensely private individual. When Bertensson and Leyda's 1956 biography appeared, it lifted the veil of secrecy from several areas of Rachmaninoff's life, especially concerning the genesis of his compositions and how their critical reception affected him. The authors consulted many of Rachmaninoff's associates. Given full access to the Rachmaninoff Archive at the Library of Congress, they were tireless in their pursuit of privately held documents, particularly correspondence. David Cannata's new introduction summarizes what has happened in Rachmaninoff scholarship since the book was first published. Sergei Bertensson , who knew Rachmaninoff, published other works on music and film, often with a documentary emphasis.

    Russian Composer Sergei Rachmaninoff
    was born on April 1, 1873, on a large estate near the ancient city of Novgorod, Russia. His father was an army officer and his mother was a wealthy heiress. His father gambled, drank, and squandered his wife's money. He deserted his family when Sergei was nine years old. By all accounts Young Sergei was a problem child, but had an extraordinary talent at the piano. At age nine he entered the College of Music in St. Petersburg, however because of his natural gift he did not bother to study. To solve his discipline problem Rachmaninoff moved to Moscow to live with Nikolai Zvereff of the Moscow Conservatory, one of the leading music teachers in Russia at the time. In 1892, Rachmaninoff graduated from the conservatory with high honors. In 1909, Rachmaninoff made his first visit to the United States and received an enthusiastic welcome. Afterwards, he visited America once every season. Rachmaninoff died on March 28, 1943 only a few weeks after attaining his American citizenship, and only five days before his seventieth birthday. During his career Rachmaninoff wrote some 145 compositions. If you are aware of books, movies, databases, web sites or other information sources about

    The Rachmaninov Lover's Home Page
    It is tempting to explain Sergey Vasil'yevich Rachmaninov's lifelong outward stoicism, the icy demeanor he always exhibited when performing, as a protective mechanism acquired slowly and painfully in his youth, when one difficulty after another presented itself to a sensitive, naturally withdrawn young man who was nevertheless determined to make his way in the world as a musician. He had little help from his parents. His father squandered the famiIy fortune so quickly that Sergey was only nine years old when he saw the estate at Novgorod where they had lived, the last of their property, auctioned off to pay debts. By that time Rachmaninov was studying piano with his cousin Alexander Ziloti and composing prolifically. He would endure further hardships, but at least his genius was also being recognized, and he began to gather champions to his cause. An early convert was the older composer Peter Tchaikovsky, who attended the performance of his graduation piece, the opera Aleko. Tchaikovsky was to have conducted another early Rachmaninov work, the symphonic fantasy The Rock , but he died before being able to do so (Rachmaninov responded by writing an Elegiac Trio in his memory). Another ambitious early work. the
