He looks like a big child, I mean someone who kept his childhood's imagination and creativity.

How sad that this great composer suffered from months of severe depression. I would love to have been at his last house in Beverly Hills when Horowitz came to visit ad they played the two-piano "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini."

He was honest and straight and fair when he saw the black pianist Art Tatum, He reckoned Art was better than him. I doubt that but it is huge respect, insistence of deserved focus and, being an obvious private genius a deflection from himself.

How wonderful to see this hero of ours fooling around with his family and friends!  His sense of humour seems very much in evidence in every scene.  We already knew him partly from the incredible depths of his musical genius.  To see him as a funny, family man, he merely ascends in our opinion, if that were possible. What a poorer world it would be without Rachmaninoff.

How can even someone dislike this. I mean, if you search for a Rachmaninov video you are clearly interested in him, not just for entertainment. There are just some dumb people out there.

recorded in 1929, end of the Roaring Twenties, year of the Stock Market Crash to be followed by the Great Depression here...and famine in the Soviet Union. Thank God he didn't end up in a gulag

My piano teacher used to tell me that he lived for a time in our hometown of West Islip, NY (Long Island). He said he had Rachmaninoff's practice keyboard.
