Sergei Rachmaninoff in the Mariinsky Theatre Second Stage

Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.

Sergei Rachmaninoff is a composer who touches the essence of things without any embarrassment. Moreover, Rachmaninoff is bright, emotional, powerful, but at the same time he is closed aristocratically. There is some tension between these qualities but it makes his music to rub your raw nerve.

I can’t show you this stunning music but I can try to convey the mood of the show with my pictures that I made the other day at the very new but already legendary Mariinsky Theatre Second Stage in St. Petersburg.
