Petersburg Conservatory, and then graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in , winning the Great Gold Medal for his new opera "Aleko. But the disastrous premiere of his 1st Symphony, poorly conducted by A.
Glazunov, coupled with his distress over the Russian Orthodox Church's pressure against his marriage, caused him to suffer from depression, which interrupted his career for three years until he sought medical help in He had a three-month treatment by a hypnotherapist, aimed at overcoming his writer's block.
Upon his recovery, Rachmaninov composed his brilliant 2nd Piano Concerto, and made a comeback with successful concert performances.
From he was a conductor at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. In Rachmaninov made his first tour of the United States having composed the 3rd Piano Concerto as a calling card.
He appeared as a soloist with Gustav Mahler conducting the New York Philharmonic. His further work on merging Russian music with English literature culminated in his adaptation of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe into choral symphony, "The Bells," which Rachmaninov considered to be the best of his works.
In he wrote the choral masterpiece: "All-Night Vigil" also known as the Vespres , fifteen anthems expressing a plea for peace at a time of war.
The Russian Revolution of and the destruction of his estate forced him to emigrate. On December 23, , Rachmaninov left Russia on an open sledge carrying only a few books of sheet music.
As a pianist, Rachmaninov made over a hundred recordings and gave over one thousand concerts in America alone between and His concert performances were legendary, and he was highly regarded as a virtuoso-pianist with unmatched power and expressiveness.
Nu had hij veel profijt van de contacten die zijn familie had in de muziekwereld. Zijn oudere zus zou met Sergei meegaan om operazangeres te worden, maar ze stierf die zomervakantie.
Het lot was hem niet goed gezind: Sergei ging als jarige met roebel op zak naar een voor hem volkomen onbekende stad.
Sergei woonde in Moskou bij zijn pianoleraar Zverev en zijn vrouw Anna, samen met twee andere studenten, Pressman en Maksimov. De rest van de dag was Zverev op zijn werk en lette Anna op de leerlingen, zodat ze zich niet konden misdragen.
Het was een harde leerschool, maar het had ook zo zijn voordelen. Zverev was namelijk bekend en beroemd in de muziekwereld en kwam dus op feesten waar niet alleen grote componisten van die tijd kwamen, zoals Tjaikovski en Rubenstein, maar ook bijvoorbeeld het eerder genoemde neefje van Sergei.
Op die feesten speelden de leerlingen van Zverev dan voor. Het ging goed met de studie van Sergei en hij probeerde ook te componeren.
Zijn eerste werk was een transcriptie voor vierhandig piano van de Manfred-symfonie van Tjaikovski. Toen Sergei deze transcriptie samen met Pressman voorspeelde, was Tjaikovski zeer onder de indruk.
Hierna schreef Sergei zijn eerste echte eigen compositie hij was toen 13 jaar en die droeg hij op aan Pressman.
Het componeren ging zo goed, dat Sergei meer tijd hiervoor wilde maken. Dit paste echter niet in het strakke schema van zijn pianoleraar Zverev. Ze discussieerden een maand lang of hij meer mocht componeren, en de conclusie was dat Sergei niet meer bij Zverev kon blijven.
Sergei vertrok naar zijn tante. Sergei ondernam steeds meer op muzikaal terrein en er brak een zeer drukke tijd voor hem aan.
Hij werd dirigent van verschillende koren, en schreef nog een aantal stukken. Muzikaal ging het hem goed, maar met zijn familie dreigde een breuk.
Tijdens een kerstvakantie bezocht hij zijn moeder, maar ze konden niet meer goed met elkaar opschieten. In mei vroeg hij of hij vervroegd zijn piano-examens kon doen, een jaar eerder dan normaal.
Hij kreeg toestemming en op achttienjarige leeftijd slaagde hij met prachtige cijfers. Nadat hij die zomer zijn eerste pianoconcert had afgemaakt, werd hij ziek en kon hij lange tijd niks doen.
Toen hij weer beter was, begon hij gelijk aan zijn eerste symfonie. Niet lang hierna kwam zijn vader aan zijn deur om hulp te vragen.
Sergei liet hem binnen en zijn vader kwam bij hem wonen. Ondanks de onmogelijke omstandigheden had Sergei de opera toch binnen vijftien dagen af.
Trascorse un anno a dare concerti in Scandinavia, mentre lavorava per ampliare il suo repertorio da concertista. Verso la fine del , ricevette tre offerte di contratto americane molto interessanti dal punto di vista economici.
Nel , i Rachmaninoff acquistarono una casa negli Stati Uniti, dove consapevolmente ricreato l'atmosfera di Ivanovka: intrattenendo ospiti russi, impiegando domestici russi e seguendo le tradizioni russe La sua rinascita come compositore, fu possibile solo dopo che egli stesso ebbe costruito una nuova casa, Villa Senar sul lago di Lucerna, in Svizzera, dove trascorse le estati dal al La famiglia venne informata, ma il compositore no.
Una statua chiamata "Rachmaninov: The Last Concert", progettata e scolpita da Victor Bokarev, si trova ora nel World Fair Park a Knoxville, come omaggio permanente a Rachmaninoff.
Avrebbe voluto essere sepolto al Senar Villa, la sua tenuta in Svizzera, ma le condizioni della Seconda Guerra Mondiale resero questa richiesta impossibile.
Stanley Sadie, The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians London: MacMillian, , 20 vols. Two days later Rachmaninoff would play it "with complete artistic finish.
Regardless of the music, Rachmaninoff always planned his performances carefully. He based his interpretations on the theory that each piece of music has a "culminating point.
This was a practice he learned from Russian bass Feodor Chaliapin , a staunch friend. While his interpretations were mosaics of tiny details, when those mosaics came together in performance, they might, according to the tempo of the piece being played, fly past at great speed, giving the impression of instant thought.
One advantage Rachmaninoff had in this building process over most of his contemporaries was in approaching the pieces he played from the perspective of a composer rather than that of an interpreter.
He believed "interpretation demands something of the creative instinct. If you are a composer, you have an affinity with other composers.
You can make contact with their imaginations, knowing something of their problems and their ideals. You can give their works color.
That is the most important thing for me in my interpretations, color. So you make music live. Without color it is dead. A recording which showcases Rachmaninoff's approach is the Liszt Second Polonaise, recorded in Percy Grainger , who had been influenced by the composer and Liszt specialist Ferruccio Busoni , had himself recorded the same piece a few years earlier.
Rachmaninoff's performance is far more taut and concentrated than Grainger's. The Russian's drive and monumental conception bear a considerable difference to the Australian's more delicate perceptions.
Grainger's textures are elaborate. Rachmaninoff shows the filigree as essential to the work's structure, not simply decorative. Along with his musical gifts, Rachmaninoff possessed physical gifts that may have placed him in good stead as a pianist.
These gifts included exceptional height and extremely large hands with a gigantic finger stretch he could play a 13th with either hand [ citation needed ].
This and Rachmaninoff's slender frame, long limbs, narrow head, prominent ears, and thin nose suggest that he may have had Marfan syndrome , a hereditary disorder of the connective tissue.
This syndrome would have accounted for several minor ailments he suffered all his life, including back pain, arthritis, eye strain, and bruising of the fingertips,  although others have pointed out that this was more likely because he was playing the piano all day long.
This Marfan speculation was proposed by Dr. Young formerly principal scientist of the Wellcome Foundation in a British Medical Journal article.
Twenty years later, an article in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine , by Ramachandran and Aronson differed greatly from Young's speculation:.
The size of [Rachmaninov's] hands may have been a manifestation of Marfan's syndrome, their size and slenderness typical of arachnodactyly. However, Rachmaninov did not clearly exhibit any of the other clinical characteristics typical of Marfan's, such as scoliosis , pectus excavatum , and eye or cardiac complications.
Nor did he express any of the clinical effects of a Marfan-related syndrome, such as Beal's syndrome congenital contractural arachnodactyly , Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, homocystinuria, Stickler syndrome, or Sphrintzen-Goldberg syndrome.
There is no indication that his immediate family had similar hand spans, ruling out familial arachnodactyly. Rachmaninov did not display any signs of digital clubbing or any obvious hypertrophic skin changes associated with pachydermoperiostitis.
Acromegaly is an alternative diagnosis. From photographs of Rachmaninov in the s and his portrait by Konstantin Somov in Figure 1 , at a time when he was recording his four piano concerti, the coarse facial features of acromegaly are not immediately apparent.
However, a case can be made from later photographs During a heavy concert schedule in Russia in , he interrupted his schedule because of stiffness in his hands.
This may have been due to overuse, although carpal tunnel syndrome or simply swelling and puffiness of the hands associated with acromegaly may have been the cause.
In , Rachmaninov made a final revision of his troublesome Fourth Concerto but composed no more new music. A rapidly progressing melanoma forced him to break off his — concert tour after a recital in Knoxville, Tennessee.
A little over five weeks later he died in the house he had bought the year before on Elm Drive in Beverly Hills. Melanoma is associated with acromegaly and may have been a final clue to Rachmaninov's diagnosis.
But then again, perhaps he just had big hands. I am five feet-five and a half cm Many of Rachmaninoff's recordings are acknowledged classics. In , Rachmaninoff recorded a selection of piano pieces for Edison Records on their " Diamond Disc " records,  as they claimed the best audio fidelity in piano recording.
Thomas Edison , who was quite deaf,  did not care for Rachmaninoff's playing, or for classical music in general, and referred to him as a "pounder" at their initial meeting.
Rachmaninoff recorded on a Lauter concert grand piano, one of the few the company made. He felt his performances varied in quality and requested final approval prior to a commercial release.
Edison agreed, but still issued multiple takes, an unusual practice which was standard at Edison Records, where strict company policy demanded three good takes of each piece in case of damage or wear to the masters.
Rachmaninoff and Edison Records were pleased with the released discs and wished to record more, but Edison refused, saying the ten sides were sufficient.
In , Rachmaninoff signed a contract with the Victor Talking Machine Company later RCA Victor. Unlike Edison, the company was pleased to comply with his requests, and proudly advertised Rachmaninoff as one of their prominent recording artists.
He continued to record for Victor until , when the American Federation of Musicians imposed a recording ban on their members in a strike over royalty payments.
Rachmaninoff died in March , over a year and a half before RCA Victor settled with the union and resumed commercial recording activity.
Particularly renowned are his renditions of Schumann's Carnaval and Chopin's Funeral March Sonata , along with many shorter pieces.
He recorded all four of his piano concertos with the Philadelphia Orchestra , including two versions of the second concerto with Leopold Stokowski conducting an abridged acoustical recording in and a complete electrical recording in , and a world premiere recording of the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini , soon after the first performance with the Philadelphians under Stokowski.
The first, third, and fourth concertos were recorded with Eugene Ormandy in — Rachmaninoff also made three recordings conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra in his own Third Symphony , his symphonic poem Isle of the Dead , and his orchestration of Vocalise.
In an article for Gramophone , April , Rachmaninoff defended an earlier stated view on the musical value of radio, about which he was sceptical: "the modern gramophone and modern methods of recording are musically superior to wireless transmission in every way".
Rachmaninoff was also involved in various ways with music on piano rolls. Several manufacturers, and in particular the Aeolian Company, had published his compositions on perforated music rolls from about onwards.
Aeolian in London created a set of three rolls of this concerto in , which remained in the catalogues of its various successors until the late s.
From he made 35 piano rolls 12 of which were his own compositions , for the American Piano Company Ampico 's reproducing piano.
According to the Ampico publicity department, he initially disbelieved that a roll of punched paper could provide an accurate record, so he was invited to listen to a proof copy of his first recording.
After the performance, he was quoted as saying "Gentlemen—I, Sergei Rachmaninoff, have just heard myself play!
He continued to record until around , though his last roll, the Chopin Scherzo in B-flat minor, was not published until October A film biography of Rachmaninoff titled Vetka sireni Branch of Lilacs and directed by Pavel Lungin was produced in Russia in The musical Preludes by Dave Malloy depicts Rachmaninoff's struggle with depression and writer's block.
