20.01.2018 : Rachmaninov

The brilliant composer, conductor and pianist Sergei V. Rachmaninov (1873-1943) was born within a Russian aristocrate family near Novgorod. Parts of his oevre were played by Prof. Vladimir Ovchinnikow at a reception by the General Consul Vladimir Sedykh and his wife in Bonn.

Also the ambiente of the event is very historic: it was after World War II in 1949/50 the home of the first German post-war President and it was the place to announce the first government lead by Konrad Adenauer. Later it became the Embassy of the Soviet Union in West Germany. After the German reunification and the transfer of the German government to Berlin, the building is the Consulate General of Russia and a meeting point of cultural dialogues.
