Rachmaninov: All-Night-Vigil; La Nuit and Pâques from Suite No 1 – ‘Fantasie for Two Pianos

“Even in my wildest dreams I could not have imagined that I would write such a work.” So wrote Sergei Rachmaninov about his deeply moving All-Night Vigil, known as the Vespers, one of the choral masterpieces of the twentieth century which was premiered 100 years ago.

This performance will be given by a 100-strong choir, filling the candlelit hall with the sonorous sounds of Russian Orthodox music. La Nuit and Pâques from the wonderful atmospheric Fantasie for Two Pianos complete the programme.
