Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Musicologists have time and again noted the immediate connection between great 20th century composer Sergei Rachmaninov and Russian culture. Loving church singing with all his heart, comparing it with folk music and considering both in aggregate the primary sources of Russian music, Rachmaninov took up the composing of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom with zest. The work was first performed by the Synodal Choir conducted by Danilin in November 1910. In his liturgy, Rachmaninov extensively used intonations of popular vocal music and plainchant, continuing the traditions of his predecessors.
