4766Slavyanka concerts of Rachmaninoff choral music November 1, 2 and 3 in Tiburon, Palo Alto and Kensington
- Oct 8, 2013Slavyanka MenÃ‚â€™s Russian Chorus and Women Singers Present
In honor of the 140th and 70th anniversaries of his birth and deathÃ‚â€¦
Ã‚â€œRachmaninoff Known and UnknownÃ‚â€�
Lovers of choral music wonÃ‚â€™t want to miss one of these three
opportunities to hear glorious choral music from one of RussiaÃ‚â€™s
greatest composers. YouÃ‚â€™ve heard his dazzling piano and orchestral
compositions, now come hear some of Rachmaninoff 's equally amazing
choral works, including selections from his beloved Ã‚â€œVespersÃ‚â€� and less
well known Ã‚â€œLiturgyÃ‚â€� -- some of the most moving pieces of sacred music
ever written -- plus rarely heard secular romances, "Three Russian Folk
Songs" with piano accompaniment, and a beautiful choral concerto that
Rachmaninoff wrote when he was just twenty years old.
These concerts will feature SlavyankaÃ‚â€™s traditional menÃ‚â€™s choir,
augmented by our new Slavyanka Women Singers, a forty voice ensemble in
all, led by SlavyankaÃ‚â€™s exciting new artistic director Irina Shachneva.
