Sergei Rachmaninov – Vespers ‘All Night-Vigil’, Op.37
- - - - - - - - - -
Rachmaninov composed his Vespers (‘All Night-Vigil’) for the Easter Vigil of 1915, against the backdrop of the looming Russian Revolution. The thousand-year old Russian songs, which he combined with old church melodies and a chanting style, make for a monumental, nearly symphonic work with impressive choral sections and unusual harmonies. A classic that even 100 years on is still able to move us to the core of being.
