Sergei Rachmaninov: Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom / Rundfunkchor Berlin, Nicolas Fink

Album Summary

>Rachmaninov, Sergey : Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, for chorus, Op. 31
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Sergei Rachmaninoff composed a setting of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in 1910 that is the Eastern Orthodox counterpart to the Catholic Ordo missae. In this work for a cappella choir he succeeded in creating a masterpiece in his own unique style. The formidable, three-time Grammy® Award, two-time ECHO Klassik Award winning sixty-four member Rundfunkchor Berlin, and the oldest choir in Germany, is heard in this demanding, rewarding work under the direction of Nicolas Fink, assistant to the choir's Chief Conductor Simon Halsey.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
Nicolas Fink directs a beautifully shaped performance - the Trisagion and the Lord's Prayer are among the highlights,... the choir respond extremely well to the challenge of achieving a 'Slavic sound', helped by some excellent low basses... beautifully recorded at the Auenkirche in Berlin.
