Russian Treasures

Posted on 20th September 2013

If you’re around London on 30th January 2014, you won’t want to miss our Russian Treasures concert at St James Church, Spanish Place.  There is a wealth of choral music associated with the liturgy from the Eastern Orthodox Churches, dating back to the 16th Century and evolving more-or-less uninterrupted until the sudden decline in the Church’s fortunes which accompanied the Bolshevik Rebellion in 1917. This programme includes works from two of the greatest names in Russian music, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, but also some gems by far less well known composers, such as Chesnokov, Golovanov and Kalinnikov, rarely sung outside Russia.

Tickets are available through the Barbican Box Office.

…and for those who can’t wait, here’s a short extract!
