  • About the Program:

The RCCNY commemorates Memorial Day and honors peace with selections from the monumental “Eternal Memory to the Heroes” by Alexander Kastalsky, dedicated to the victims of World War I. The first part of the program features Tchaikovsky’s striking “Blessed are They, Whom Thou Hast Chosen,” and a choral arrangement of Samuel Barber’s haunting masterpiece, “Adagio for Strings.” The second part of the program features works by two of the 20th century’s choral giants – Tavener’s soaring “Svyati” and Sergei Taneyev’s powerful cantata “John of Damascus,” also known as “A Russian Requiem”, a work that unites contrasting musical styles to express the notion that those who have left us are not truly gone. The program also features the tenderly pure “Flame of Love” by Nikolai Golovanov, composed in secret by the famous conductor of the Bolshoi Theatre during the harshest time of Soviet rule.
