Rachmaninoff: 140th Birthday Celebration: Sacred and Secular
April 24 and 28, 2013

Join RCCNY in celebrating the remarkable and multifaceted inner world of the great Rachmaninoff. Our April program showcases the composer's versatile genius. We invite you to experience his mighty spirit in selections from "Vespers" and "Choral Concerto," the mysterious melancholy of his famous "Vocalise," the miraculous transformation of the soul and its renewal in the cantata "Spring," and the deep emotions and poetic images of nature in "Six Choruses for Women's Voices," written when Rachmaninoff was only 20 years old.
