A brief history of the composition The World War I changed the plans of Rachmaninov, who was famous throughout Europe by the time. The world events and fear for his country’s future made him stop his travels and turn to the roots of Russian musical culture, ancient ecclesiastical hymns and melodies. The “All-night vigil” was first performed by Synodal choir in Moscow on 10 March 1915. It was a huge success and for the next 2 years was performed regularly, always with a great response from the audience. However, after the October revolution in 1917 Russia took a strong anti-religious course and the composition was censored. Only in the beginning of the twentieth century this beautiful music took its’ well-deserved place in Russia’s concert life. Rachmaninov’s “All-night vigil” abides by all ecclesiastical rules and can be performed in church. Usually the composition is performed in St. Isaak’s Cathedral twice a year, in March and July. We are happy to invite all fans of Rachmaninov to one of the most beautiful cathedrals of the city to enjoy this wonderful music on July 27th. For those who won’t be able to come our channel Art TV will provide a recording. Welcome!
