Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Rachmaninoff's Vespers with an afternoon of music.

This performance marks another milestone in the choral repertoire, the 100th anniversary of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, a work the composer himself thought was one of his best. History later considered Vespers a final magnificent tribute to the music of the Russian Orthodox Church before the revolution. The premiere was March 10, 1915, in the Great Nobility Hall of the Kremlin. It was such a success, that five previously unscheduled performances were given shortly thereafter. Since 1957, the work has been performed regularly on the eve of Rachmaninoff’s birth in the Church of the Joy and All Sorrowful in Moscow.
