When Rachmaninoff was studying piano and composition at Moscow P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory, he was not directly trained by Tchaikovsky himself. However, when he graduated in 1892, old Tchaikovsky encouraged Rachmaninoff to focus on composing music, thus changing the course of the young man’s life. The Jan. 31 concert presents the works by the two masters, offering the audience a chance to compare them back to back. Rachmaninoff managed to expand and popularize Tchaikovsky's Russian romanticism, which he created at Moscow P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory, all the way until the first half of the 20th century. The "helpless romantic" style is extremely expressive and very Slavic. In terms of piano performing skills and style, Rachmaninoff carried on the heavy, dazzling playing style, later known as the Russian Piano School, which was created by Russian pianists, including Tchaikovsky. 

The concert on Jan. 31 is an event where southern Italian romanticism meets northern Russian romanticism as it opens with Italian composer Verdi's La Forza del Destino Overture. Italian romanticism is relatively brighter and lighter, even when they depict tragic fate.
