PMC Does Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

Jun 11, 2012
RACHMANINOFF 300x199 PMC Does Rachmaninoffs All Night Vigil  photo“All Night” has a beautiful history in music. For example: “You Shook Me All Night Long.” Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil” (op. 37) is a lot like that. It’s an intense choral work, an hour long, in fifteen movements, sung without instruments. It’s based largely on Russian Orthodox chants, just like the AC/DC classic. And just like the AC/DC classic, it’s a very demanding piece of music, not to mention moving, emotional, intimate, irresistible. The Pasadena Master Chorale is performing it twice this weekend, once in Pasadena, once in Altadena. It’ll keep you shaking all night long.*
