Sergei Rachmaninoff was a customer of Davies and Son.
For those of you who might be suffering from ‘cultural withdrawal’ following the seasonal holiday, we can recommend this excellent BBC documentary ‘The Joy of Rachmaninoff’. If his music isn’t dark enough for January we don’t know what is.
Whether you are a classical music fan or not you will be familiar with his powerfully dark melodies as they are so hauntingly identifiable – in particular his Prelude in C sharp Minor which he composed when he was a teenager. There is a Slavic melancholic depth to this piece that, once heard, makes it hard to forget.
We have recently taken delivery of a new ‘Birdseye’ stock cloth from Dugdale. The English Super 110 cloth combines classic background shades and designs. We have it in three shades of grey and two blues.
These 9 ozs or 280gms cloths have a slightly ‘crushed’ finish adding to their handle and longevity.
If you would like to see the cloth but cant make it to the shop please contact us via the website and we will send you a sample piece.
Perhaps a bit over looked as a result of all those great pictures of the cycling suit are these gems.
