For our final concert of the 2013-2014 season, we proudly present Sergei Rachmaninov's monumental All-Night Vigil (Vsénoschchnoe bdénie). Composed in under a fortnight in January and February 1915, the 15-movement work is considered to be the crowning glory of the Russian Orthodox Church. It was also to be Rachmaninov's last major composition before his emigration to the United States in 1917. Read more [PDF]
