This tranquil countryside setting was the ideal location for Rachmaninoff to compose his works

Ivanovka (Russian: Ивановка) is an estate near Tambov, Russia, which used to be the summer residence of the Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff in the period between 1890 and 1917 (until his emigration). It was the family home of his aristocratic relatives, the Satins. Many of Rachmaninoff's earlier masterpieces were created in its bucolic atmosphere. A museum commemorating the life and works of the composer was opened there in 1982.

The estate of Rachmaninoff is actually located due east of the Russian town called Mozdek, and can be found at latitude 51°57'14.24"N and longitude 42° 0'7.85"E.1 This estate is now a museum dedicated to the beloved Russian composer, whose professional life was marked with dismissive criticism,2 although his music continues to fill concert halls around the world. Although located in the Tambov Oblast, the house of his inheritance is some 12 miles due west from Uvaravo,3 and this was likely his community. A trip to Moscow would be some 300 miles and was likely taken by Train from Tambov.4
