RACHMANINOFF UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL PROGRAM - VIP AFTERNOON (June, 14)
Starting at 14:00 on Sunday and ending around 18:00 the VIP Afternoon will be the pride of the entire event with great-granddaughters of both Sergei Rachmaninoff as well as of Alexander Siloti having agreed to participate, taking honorary roles and the eminent Rachmaninoff pioneer, pianist François-Joël Thiollier playing a keynote recital on the composer’s Steinway D.
After a tour of the park and a visit to both the Guest House and Villa as well as to the unique Rachmaninoff Up, Close and Personal Exhibition, High Tea will be served on the terrace, just as in the 1930's - providing a chance to socialize. The piano recital will conclude the VIP Afternoon. Before that François-Joël Thiollier will also participate in a Q&A session about the characteristics of Rachmaninoff’s own Steinway.
