Tatiana Rakhmaninov was born on 21 June / 4 July 1907 at the Rachmaninoff family estate, Ivanovka, in the Tambov region of Russia. She is the younger of the two daughters of composer Sergei Rachmaninoff.
She married businessman Boris Yulyevich Conus (1904-1988) on 8 May 1932. After honeymooning in Italy, Tatiana and Boris made their home in Paris where Boris was employed. They had one son, Aleksandr (Alexandre) Borisovich Rachmaninoff-Conus (b. 8 March 1933, d. 1 Nov 2012).
[Serge and Boris Conus are the two sons of Julius Conus (1869-1942): violinist, composer, and a lifelong friend of the Rachmaninoffs and Satins since their days at the Moscow Conservatory. Rachmaninoff dedicated his Opus 6 pieces for violin and piano to Julius Conus. Conus premiered Rachmaninoff's second piano trio, Opus 9, on 31 January 1894, with the composer at the piano and cellist Anatoly Brandukov.]
Following the death of Irina's husband Peter, the Rachmaninoffs established the TAIR Publishing House in Paris in 1925, at 22 rue d'Anjou. (TAIR is an acronym for their daughters' names Tatiana and Irina.) Tatiana managed TAIR until it was liquidated in 1935.
Tatiana Conus was active in the cause of White Russian refugees. She passed away at the summer home built by her parents in Hertenstein, Switzerland beside Lake Lucerne, named Villa SENAR (an acronym for Sergei and Natalya Rachmaninoff). Senar and Ivanovka were in recent years managed by the composer's grandson Alexandre Rachmaninoff-Conus (1933-2012). Alexandre, Senar, and Ivanovka can be seen in the 2007 biographical film "The Harvest of Sorrow."
Tatiana's obituary was published in the New York Times on 6 August 1961. She was survived by her husband and son.
