Rachmaninov: Cello Sonata and Vespers – Sat 1 July 2017
New Cambridge Singers
Rachmaninov: Cello Sonata and Vespers
with Graham Walker, Director and cello, and Marie-Noelle Kendall, piano
Saturday 1 July at 7.30pm in St Vigor’s Church, Fulbourn
The soaring melodies and gorgeous harmonies of Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata come from the same rich vein as his popular Second Piano Concerto, whilst the Vespers show a compositional genius at the height of his powers. In fifteen short movements he transforms the plainchant melodies of the Orthodox Church into an incredible symphony of choral writing, offering textural intricacy and emotional power.
