SERGEI RACHMANINOFF: CROSS RHYTHMS OF THE SOUL
by Valeria Z. Nollan
The first biography of Rachmaninoff in English that presents him in the fullness of his Russian identity, plunging readers into Rachmaninoff’s complex inner world.
“Among the many biographies of Rachmaninoff, this study is distinguished by its insights into how the composer’s genius was formed by Russian life and culture, especially Russian Orthodoxy. Nollan’s knowledge of Rachmaninoff’s Russian worlds presents a more authentic understanding of him than we have had before.”
— Randall A. Poole, College of St. Scholastica
“"”[The author’s] recurrent attention to Rachmaninoff’s Russian Orthodox identity adds a welcome dimension to her portrait of the composer who authored what may be the world’s best-known piece of modern Orthodox church music, the 1915 All-Night Vigil (Op. 37).”
—Paul Valliere, Butler University
