conducted by Rick Prakhoff
Sergei Rachmaninov's All Night Vigil ("Vespers")
with selections of the J S Bach Solo Cello music
Emily Bauer-Jones, Mezzo Soprano
Timothy Reynolds, Tenor
Chris Howlett, Cello
Sergei Rachmaninov’s All Night Vigil, first performed in Moscow in 1915, is remarkably
different from the late Romantic piano music for which he is generally known. These settings of the Russian Orthodox Vespers and morning service blend ancient Slavonic chants with richly expressive harmony.
In this concert, Rachmaninov’s a cappella masterpiece is juxtaposed to excerpts from J.S.Bach’s solo cello suites, played by Chris Howlett.
