Recital: “Inspired by Rachmaninoff”: Children’s Art and Creativity


Art of Piano Playing Music School took a part in the recital devoted to the memory of the greatest Russian Composer, Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (1873-1943), whose 140th anniversary is being celebrated this year. The concert was organized by The Russian Heritage Foundation on Saturday October 12 at 5:30 pm at the Nicholas Roerich Museum at 319 West 107 Street New York NY. The recital presented the children's creative works inspired by the Rachmaninoff's music. These included piano recitals of his music pieces, live performances of his romances, the literary translations, declamations, presentations, as well as the musical, dance and art improvisations by children of all ages who wanted to express their feelings when listening to beautiful Rachmaninoff's music, which, for some, stands as an archetype of the Russian soul in Russian Classical style.
