The Rachmaninoff Vespers – Slavic Chants

STEVEN FOX conductor with CLARION CHOIR

The All-Night Vigil is perhaps Sergei Rachmaninoff’s greatest choral masterpiece, a lush and transcendent setting of traditional texts from the canonical hours of the Russian Orthodox Church. Written in 1915, its magnificent, soaring movements derive from ancient Kievan and Byzantine chants, many of which will be presented in this concert together with Rachmaninoff’s settings. The acclaimed Clarion Choir of New York join the Schola Cantorum under the direction of guest conductor Steven Fox.
