SERGEI RACHMANINOFF, RUSSIAN COMPOSER
[ ] 20.02.2009, 13:12
Indifferent years Sergey Rakhmaninov (Rachmaninov) stayed in Miskhor ar the "Nyura" Villa.   In Hotel "Rossia" (Russia), now "Taurida-Consol`", the writer Ivan Bunin and the composer Sergey Rachmaninov met and developed a lasting friendship.Inside the A.Chekhov’s house-museum you can see the writer’s piano Rachmaninov played when he visited Anton Chekhov`s White Dacha.
 
  Alupka is breathtaking… It was Count Vorontsov’s dream… 20 years in the making from 1828-1848, to create this Tudor style palace with elements of Indian architecture such as its Alhambra southern entrance overlooking the Sea. It has been called "music in stone". Churchill had a strong friendship with the owner of Alupka in 1945 and must not have minded getting away from the fray a bit….His rooms definitely had a view!

One thing you will never forget at Alupka: a white piano in the Blue Room where Rachmaninoff had played his music in an earlier era!
