About

‘The choral symphonic poem “The Bells” was written during Rachmaninov’s last years in Russia (first performance 1913, emigration 1917). It is, without a doubt, note-worthy that the Russian translation of a poem (“The Bells”) by Edgar Allan Poe was used.

‘I know of no other famous Russian composition of that time which is based on an American text.

‘Rachmaninov conducted the first performance in Saint Petersburg himself. In spite of already having a very successful career as a soloist behind him, composing was always more important to him than playing concerts.’

– Gabriel Feltz
