Steinberg Passion Week (UK premiere)
Rachmaninov selections from Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

Conducted by alumnus Steven Fox ARAM, The Clarion Choir, one of the premier professional vocal ensembles in the United States, gives the UK premiere of Maximilian Steinberg’s long-hidden masterpiece from the 1920s, following the work’s Russian premiere in St Petersburg on Tuesday 25th October. Steinberg, a student of Rimsky-Korsakov and teacher of Shostakovich, composed this piece when sacred music was banned in Russia; it was never performed in his lifetime. During their visit the choir will also work with the Academy’s Choral Conducting students on Russian choral music.

In the first part of the programme, the Choir performs selections from Rachmaninov’s magical setting of the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom.

Tickets £25, £15 (concessions £20, £10) from the Academy’s Box Office: online now, telephone 020 7873 7300 (weekdays 10.00am–4.00pm)
