We are having the next event in the series “Russian Composers of the XIX-XX centuries”. This time, we devote it to the memory of the greatest Russian Composer, Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (1873-1943), whose 140th anniversary is being celebrated this year.
First, we would focus on the different stages of life of the composer and pianist who, by all means, “gave way to a thoroughly personal idiom that included a pronounced lyricism, expressive breadth, structural ingenuity, and a tonal palette of rich, distinctive orchestral colors”.
Second, we would present the children’s creative works inspired by the Rachmaninoff’s music. These would include piano recitals of his music pieces, living performances of his romances, the literary translations, declamations, presentations, as well as the musical, dance and art improvisations by children of all ages who want to express their feelings when listening to beautiful Rachmaninoff’s music, which, for some, stands as an archetype of the Russian soul in Russian Classical style.
We invited prominent NY Piano School.
