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.

The reference to the three-piece suit made by Davies and Son appears at 49.35.
