Description

The musical child of Russia's golden age, Sergei Rachmaninoff, was the last great romantic. Scorned by the musical establishment until very recently, his music received hostile reviews from critics and other composers. Conversely, it never failed to find widespread popular acclaim. Michael Scott's book investigates Rachmaninoff's intense and often melodramatic life, following him from imperial Russia to his years of exile as a wandering virtuoso and his death in Beverley Hills during the Second World War, worn out by his punishing schedule.show more
