Family Sergei Rachmaninov refused to carry his ashes in Russia: they are not going to go against the will of the composer, even on the eve of the 150th anniversary of his birth

Great granddaughter pianist Susan Sophia Rachmaninoff-Volkonskaia-Wanamaker recalled that in his will he ordered to bury him in New York with his wife and daughter.

Medina said that American culture has privatized the name of Rachmaninoff, and his remains are to be transported to Russia.

The composer left his homeland in 1918 and then lived in the United States and Switzerland.

Oneg estate near Novgorod belonged to the mother of the composer, Rachmaninov here spent the first eight years of life. Now it is completely destroyed, preserved only remnants of the foundation and the manor park. The regional authorities intend to restore Oneg, created there by 2018, cultural and recreational complex with a concert hall.

So the matter of close relatives, not Medina. avalonsys, August 16
