Biographies Letter R Rachmaninoff biography. Rachmaninoff also made a number of piano rolls. Initially disbelieving that a roll of punched paper could provide an accurate record, he was invited to listen to a master roll of his first recording in 1919 for the Ampico company. He is then quoted as saying 'Gentleman - I, Sergei Rachmaninoff, have just heard myself play!'. He continued to record for Ampico until around 1929.

Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (Russian: Сергей Васильевич Рахманинов, Sergej Vasil'evič Rahmaninov, April 1, 1873 – March 28, 1943) was a Russian-born composer who later in life became an American citizen. It should be noted that in his younger days, Rachmaninoff was found to be quite lazy, failing most of his classes and spending much time skating because his schooling was not challenging enough.

This Sergei Rachmaninoff biography looks at the life and lavish, gloomy music of this supreme Romantic virtuoso. Sergei Rachmaninoff was a titan of early 20th century piano music, creating finger-breakingly difficult pieces and heart-meltingly dark, romantic music. He was equally famous as a pianist and as a composer He was a master of complexity, and gave his music an almost modern feel. Rachmaninov was also a skilled orchestrator, creating subtle textures and controlling instrumental combinations to stir the soul. He liked to use widely-spaced chords to create bell-like sounds, both in his piano and orchestral music.

Sergey Rachmaninoff in his lifetime knew equal success as composer, performer, and conductor. From his youth until weeks before his death, his subtle and richly imaginative pianism thrilled and absorbed audiences, but it was for his compositions that he wanted above all to be remembered - a body of work that carried the lyricism of Tchaikovsky and the technical brilliance of Liszt into the twentieth century.Born in 1873, Rachmaninoff graduated from the Moscow Conservatory both as a pianist and as a composer. He became world-famous at 19 with the composition of his Prelude in C sharp minor but then, discouraged by the failure of his First Symphony in 1897, he concentrated for a time on a virtuoso piano career. Later, finding some relief from depression through hypnotherapy, he began work on his Second Piano Concerto. It was to be the most celebrated example of its genre in this century.Married in 1902 to his cousin Natalie Satina, Rachmaninoff pursued all three of his professions, living mainly in Russia; but after the revolution of 1917 he emigrated, never to return. From then on, he toured both Europe and the United States yearly as a pianist, while still finding time to compose such works as the eloquent Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Plagued by illness throughout his life, and renowned for his unsmiling reserve in public, Rachmaninoff was nevertheless known to friends and family as a warm, relaxed individual, a personality reflected in the affecting openness of his music.Since the first edition of this acclaimed study of Rachmaninoff's life and work appeared in 1976, his music has become more widely known, not only the orchestral pieces but also the songs, solo piano music, and choral works. For this edition Geoffrey Norris has incorporated recent documentary and chronological findings and has spent time in research at Ivanovka, the estate deep in the Russian countryside where Rachmaninoff wrote much of his music.
