26 Tchaikovsky’s influence on Rachmaninoff’s music is obvious enough but his two conservatory teachers – Arensky who taught him harmony, fugue and free composition, and Taneyev, from whom he learned counterpoint – were scarcely less important. 27 Although a Rimsky-Korsakov pupil, that did not prevent his master dismissing him:28 ‘he will soon be forgotten,’ he asserted. This may have been an oblique reference to Arensky’s alcoholism which brought his career (and life) to an untimely premature conclusion, or maybe Rimsky was jealous because Arensky ‘had fallen under Tchaikovsky’s influence’.

It was not for another two weeks that Arensky told me what he had written; he was probably afraid I would become vain so he had tried to keep it a secret from me. The board had granted me a ‘five plus’ [top marks], and Tchaikovsky had added three more plus signs–above it, below it and to the side of it. 31 As a reward Zverev permitted him for the first time, when he was fifteen, to visit the home of his relatives, the Satins. Natalia, the elder daughter of the Satins who Sergei would marry a decade later, remembered how condescending he was to her after she played through a piano reduction of one of Vanya’s arias from Glinka’s A Life for the Tsar.

3). On other occasions he played pieces by Moszkowski and Schulhoff, a pupil of Chopin. When the boys were not at the conservatory, they would be at home practising under the beady eye of Zverev’s spinster sister, Anna Sergeyevna, ‘a rather disagreeable and spiteful person,’8 as Rachmaninoff described her. She would carry out her brother’s instructions and see that the boys were not late to start practicing or early to finish. Although Zverev was not concerned with the study of theory and harmony – these were of greater importance to composers than pianists – he did employ a teacher, Mme Belopolskaya, who would play four-hand arrangements with the boys in turn.
