Spring brings the main musical event of the year to Tambov – the International Festival named after the great Russian musician, Sergey Rakhmaninov. His life and creative activity were closely linked to Ivanovka country estate, one of the most picturesque places in our region. Ivanovka was Rakhmaninov’s creative laboratory. Here, among the steppe expanse, his talent of a musician flourished. Today, Rakhmaninov country estate functions as a museum.
Many outstanding musicians of the world consider it an honor to take part in the festival dedicated to the great composer, pianist and conductor. The festival program is quite diverse including various music styles – from instrumental classics to jazz improvisations.
