Russian Treasures is the twentieth album from Tenebrae, and the first release on new label Bene Arte established exclusively to record the choir and associated artists. Russian choral music has been a feature in Tenebrae’s concert performances since the choir’s inception and over the years they have worked extensively with Russian language coaches whilst nurturing their own characteristics of passion and precision to deliver a special and heartfelt tribute to the music of these great composers. Choir and Organ describes the release as “majestic interpretations with a beautiful bloom on the recorded sound.”
Tenebrae will be performing a programme based on this recording across the UK in 2015. The repertoire includes well known works such as from Rachmanninov’s Vespers, but also far less well known gems by names such as Golovanov, Kedrov and Kalinnikov. You can hear Tenebrae perform this programme in Sherborne, Reading, Stour, Hexham, Oxford or Shrewsbury.
