Russian Concert at Winchester Cathedral

Sat 20/05/17 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Prokoviev's Alexander Nevsky and Rachmaninov's The Bells at Winchester Cathedral with the Royal Choral Society.

In the one-hundredth year after the Russian Revolution, the Royal Choral Society will perform two Russian masterpieces: Prokoviev's seven-movement catata Alexander Nevsky, based on his towering score for Einstein's epic film of the same name, and Rachmaninov's secular choral tour de force, The Bells, based on Edgar Allan Poe's poem. The concert will be performed in the hallowed surroundings of Winchester Cathedral and the choir will be accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra who will open the concert with Borodin's In the Steppes of Central Asia. This concert is not to be missed!
