The Story of Rachmaninov tells a dramatic story that starts in Imperial Russia, ends in Beverley Hills, sweeps through old and new worlds, penniless exile, comfortless fame, and asks searching questions questions along the way. Who was Rachmaninov? Why does he matter? What did he leave the future?
The show comprises songs and piano solos embedded in a spoken commentary, providing a full evening of glorious music and words by world class artists. See www.musicjersey.com for more information about the Liberation Festival.
