Mrs Olga Dubois and Mr Gabriel Diaconu perform Sergeï Rachmaninov in the Marble Gallery

ABSM 20 Gala, 2019 / Sunday, October 13th, 2019

The Gala of the Belgian Association of Marfan Syndrome Association (ABSM) ended in apotheosis with an interpretation of Sergeï Rachmaninov by Mrs Olga Dubois and Mr Gabriel Diaconu in the very beautiful Marble Gallery of the Palais des Académies.

Together, they performed 4 songs:
1) Сирень / Siren / Lilac
2) Сон / Sound / Dream
3) Здесь хорошо / Zdes khorosho / It is here  
4) Я жду тебя / Ya zhdu tebya/ I'm waiting for you 

Sergei Rachmaninoff's choice was not innocent since he, like other virtuoso Muscisians, most probably had Marfan syndrome (Young, "Rachmaninoff and Marfan's syndrome", Br Med J (Clin Res Ed): first published as 10.1136/bmj.293.6562.1624 on 20 December 1986)
