Rachmaninoff: Life, Works, Recordings
Bloomsbury Academic, nov. 28, 2006 - 422 páginas
Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) is now widely regarded as one of the greatest 20th-century composers and pianists. In this illuminating and accessible biography, Max Harrison covers the span of Rachmaninoff's life, taking in his career as composer, pianist and conductor, offering full analyses of his scores and a uniquely detailed treatment of his 1919-1942 recordings. A fascinating account of the man, his life and work, this book sheds much new light on its subject and the ways that Rachmaninoff was viewed during his own time and beyond.

Rachmaninov being one of my favorite composers, I have been wanting to read a biography of him for a long time. Having heard this was the 'definitive' biography I got it out of the library. I have to say I really enjoyed it. As an admirer of Rachmaninov's recordings, moreover, I appreciated the detailed coverage of these in the book - and the very comprehensive list of everything Rach every recorded in the appendix! However, I recall seeing a 'review' of this book somewhere (it may have even been on the back of the book, but as I've sent it back to the library now I can't check) which described it as 'objective'. This is COMPLETE NONSENSE. Harrison has his own, very clear-cut opinions (some obvious, such as his opinion on the worth of various works by Rachmaninov, and some more subtle), many of which I personally disagree with (although this by no means spoiled the book.) It was these judgements that irritated me while I was reading, largely because the author presented them as 'facts' rather than as what they were, simply an opinion. Neverthless, this book is extremely comprehensive and well structured and I feel no need to go seeking out another biography of Rachmaninov for comparison.
