It’s time for Sergei Rachmaninov: the American Years. He had fled Russia with his wife and two daughters when Lenin confiscated his estates. With gold coins sewn into their clothing, the family had escaped the Workers’ Paradise for Helsinki via an open sleigh. He spent most of 1918 moving around Scandinavia, giving concerts.

Sergei’s American tour in 1909 had brought him into contact with a country where there was opportunity. He had especially been smitten with New York. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

Traveling from Norway to New York by ship, Sergei was greeted at the dock by a Western Union delivery boy massacring his name as “Sir Jee Ratch-man-off”. With the assistance of fellow Russians on board who could speak English, he perused two telegrams, one from Boston and one from Cincinnati.

From Boston came the offer of the directorship of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Boston? Nice town. First rate orchestra. Good community of Russian scholars at Harvard and other schools. Great intellectual climate.

From Cincinnati came a similar offer with their orchestra. Cincinnati? Heavily southern German and Catholic. Hog butcher to the world. Second tier orchestra, but could be whipped into shape.

Had Sergei received a third telegram, one offering him the directorship of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, history might have taken a different turn.

Sergei Rachmaninov was best known as a conductor first, then a composer, then a pianist. He was the leading conductor of Russian opera in the business. But Russian opera doesn’t travel very well. There are probably no more than five or six Russian operas in the active repertory outside Russia. Then there was the problem of working as a full time conductor. This was not yet the era of the itinerant conductor, and he would spend all but two weeks of the year with his orchestra. The pay would be good, but not that good.

Sergei turned down both offers. The Boston slot would go to Serge Koussevitsky, another Russian emigre, who would become the matinee idol conducting star of that city.

While it wasn’t yet the era of the itinerant conductor, it was still the era of the great itinerant flamboyant pianist. Teresa Carreno had just died. Ferruccio Busoni was still on the stage, although his career was about over. Josef Hoffman, Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Rosina Lhevinne, Alfred Cortot, Artur Schnabel and Ignacy Paderewski were packing concert halls. The young Arthur Rubinstein was making waves, but he was in Paris. A teenager named Vladimir Horowitz was getting noticed, but it would be years before he could escape the Soviet Union.

Sergei believed he could blow them all off the stage.

He quickly found an agent, Charles Ellis. Steinway offered him a piano, and Ellis booked him for concerts in 40 American cities.

Sergei signed with Edison Records for a 10-side deal, but the relationship with Thomas Edison was rocky at best. Sergei didn’t like his recording techniques, his house piano, or his lack of interest in signing him to a permanent deal. He went across the street to the Victor Talking Machine Company and inked a better deal in 1920. What made this deal more palatable was that Sergei was given total creative control.

In addition to performing and recording his own music, Rachmaninov built up a repertory of Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven. The sonatas of Schubert were almost unknown at that time, but he added the Schubert impromptus and musical moments to his repertory. What he needed was a collection of encore pieces.

His first arrangement from 1918 wasn’t an encore piece, but something to begin a concert. Sergei wrote an arrangement of the national anthem of his adopted country. Josef Hoffmann had written an arrangement in C Major that was bombastic to the point where you could actually hear the bombs bursting in midair. Sergei decided to write in the traditional key of B-flat, and his arrangement was simple, dignified and had some haunting chord changes at the end.

“The Star Spangled Banner” (Rachmaninov on piano via Ampico piano roll)

Sergei Rachmaninov took to the American stage in 1919 at the age of 46 and became an overnight success.

Only a few close friends and family saw the smiling Sergei and heard his basso profundo belly laugh. Most saw the stern, reticent and aristocratic Russian who viewed himself as a musical anachronism. He didn’t understand the new music coming out of Vienna and Paris, and he settled for writing pieces rich in melodic content.

For his collection of encores, he turned to the music of Fritz Kreisler, the greatest violinist of the era and his best friend.

Kreisler: “Love’s Sorrow” (Rachmaninov on piano via Ampico piano roll)

Kreisler was tickled pink by this arrangement because of the pretentious buildup in the introduction. You’d never guess that what follows is one of the cutest bon-bons of the repertory. Listen to what Sergei does with the melody and harmonies.

Kreisler: “Love’s Joy” (Rachmaninov on piano via Ampico piano roll)

Had there been a market for the Russian art songs of Sergei Rachmaninov, he would no doubt have lined up a good exiled Russian baritone and arranged recitals where he would have been the accompanist. But lieder was a hard sell in America except among the small handful of people who liked to hear the songs of Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Wolf in German. Only a small subset of the songs of these great composers were known outside the German-speaking world.

Of Schubert’s songs, the complete song cycles “The Fair Maid of the Mill” and “Winter Journey” were well known. Both came from the poetry of Wilhelm Müller – that’s Bill Miller to us Americans – and Sergei wrote an arrangement of “Where To?” from the “Fair Maid” cycle as an encore.

Schubert: “Where To?” (Ohlsson on piano)

Maestro, that is one of the most dignified renderings of our National Anthem I have ever heard. The Philistines who mangle it with their tortured, overly melismatic efforts would do well to listen to this majestic rendering and model their own efforts upon it.



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I found it easy to play after rehearsing it for about a half hour. Had the piano at the Tea Party meeting site been up to the challenge, I would have played it to start the meeting right after the pledge of allegiance.

Among the encore pieces of Sergei Rachmaninov were arrangements of orchestral pieces that would give him a chance to show off his technique.

Rimsky-Korsakov: “Flight of the Bumble Bee” (Kissin on piano)

This arrangement makes a single piano sound like an entire orchestra.

Mendelssohn: Scherzo from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (Rachmaninov on piano via RCA Victor recording, 1933)

His partial arrangement of Bach’s Partita #3 for Violin is amazing.

Bach: 2 Movements from Partita #3 in E (Rachmaninov on piano via RCA Victor recording, 1934)

Nope...not enough rain yet. Our lakes continue to lose water,
so we’re still having water restrictions. Thanks to the cooler
