Cappella Romana on “Played in Oregon”
Tune in to AllClassical Portland this Sunday, August 30th at 1pm as Brandi Parisi plays excerpts from our 2012 Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil concert on the “Played in Oregon” program in advance of our September 11-13th All-Night Vigil performances!
Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil:
Cappella Romana’s 24th Annual Season opens with Sergei Rachmaninoff’s monumental All-Night Vigil (also known as the Vespers), in celebration of the 100th anniversary of its premiere in 1915. Impassioned and hauntingly beautiful, the All-Night Vigil is a pinnacle of the Russian choral repertoire. The performances will include psalms and hymns by Tchaikovsky and others to place Rachmaninoff’s work within its larger context.
