Example text

If they had, they might play fistfuls of wrong notes. On such occasions Zverev, hung-over though he may have been, would storm in clad only in his night clothes and make cutting remarks and slap them hard. In such fashion he would literally afford them a taste of his famous loose-wrists technique. Pressman discussed Zverev’s method: ‘An extremely valuable feature of his teaching was that he introduced us to music from the very beginning. ’6 In later years Rachmaninoff remembered Zverev affectionately: He treated us as if we were his equals.

This was his first visit to what would become his Russian home, and he would return regularly until the Revolution, after which it was destroyed. Today the house has been restored and contains a Rachmaninoff museum. His four cousins included Natalia Satina, whom he later married, and Sophia Satina, six years his junior. 3 With its own farm, orchards, stable and studs and an English-style park cultivated by his aunt Varvara, it was a sizeable and well-organised estate where there were both family and guest houses.

Rachmaninoff’s affection for Rubinstein’s piano playing remained with him all his life, which may perhaps seem strange for although recorded evidence, as well as countless ear-witnesses, confirm that his playing was ‘full of human impulse’, no pianist rehearsed more assiduously or was more thoroughly prepared. Rachmaninoff’s interpretations (though not his compositions) represent the epitome of what today could be called the Classical style.
