Tenebrae: Rachmaninov Vespers by Candlelight

St Martin-in-the-Fields, WC2N 4JJ , [Venue Details]

Soul music from the heart of a vanished Russia, as Nigel Short and Tenebrae perform Rachmaninoff’s Vespers.

Passionate, serene, and rooted in a deep and heartfelt faith, Sergei Rachmaninoff said that he loved his Vespers above all his other works.

Written as an act of consolation in the depths of the First World War, grounded in ancient Orthodox chants but clothed in all the lushness and fantasy of late-Romantic Russia, they gave their composer “an hour of the most complete satisfaction” – and every performance generates an unrepeatable atmosphere.
