Royal Choral Society: Russian Concert

Saturday 20 May 2017, 7.30pm, Cathedral Nave

To mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, one of the most turbulent events in history, the Royal Choral Society will perform two outstanding works by Russian composers – Prokoviev’s Alexander Nevsky and Rachmaninov’s The Bells – in the stunning surroundings of Winchester Cathedral. The choir will be accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which will open the concert with Borodin’s In the Steppes of Central Asia.

Alexander Nevsky, a seven-movement cantata for mezzo-soprano, choir and orchestra, is based on Prokoviev’s score for Eisenstein’s 1938 film of the same name which celebrated the thirteenth-century Russian prince Grand Duke Alexander’s decisive victory over an invading force of Teutonic knights. The film’s creation was motivated by the Soviet state’s need for propaganda to counter the rise of Nazi Germany. The film was a huge success, and Prokoviev’s score hailed as a masterpiece. Rachmaninov’s secular choral masterpiece, The Bells, predates the Revolution and features Edgar Allan Poe’s poem ‘The Bells’ at its heart. It is scored for soprano, tenor, baritone and choir, and is divided into four movements, mirroring the journey from birth to death. The Gregorian Dies Irae chant (also prominent at the end of his Paganini Rhapsody) is heard in various guises, though the work overall is in the composer’s richly Romantic orchestral vein. Rachmaninov called The Bells his ‘Choral Symphony’, and he considered it his favourite composition.

This concert will serve as a reminder of the incredible contribution of Russian music to the Western canon. With performers of the highest calibre, this will be a truly evocative concert.

The Royal Choral Society was formed in 1871 for the opening of the Royal Albert Hall.
The choir has been conducted by such luminaries as Verdi, Gounod, Dvorák, Elgar and Sargent, and today performs traditional choral repertoire and other more unusual music at events at venues around the UK and abroad.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the UK’s most prestigious orchestras, celebrated
70 years of music making in 2016. The orchestra frequently performs across the UK and throughout the world, with its repertoire encompassing every strand of music from the core classical repertoire to music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
