We had a marvellous evening on their last visit, and are pleased to welcome the Voskresenije Choir back to Fife as part of their 2012 UK tour, when Musical Director Jurij Maruk will lead the a cappella ensemble in an evening of traditional Russian sacred and folk music. Voskresenije, which means ‘resurrection’, was founded by Maruk in 1993, and brings together eight gifted vocalists, who all studied at the St Petersburg Music Conservatoire. Voskresenije is now a much respected ensemble on the sacred music circuit, winning critical acclaim across Europe for its inimitable performances.

For their return visit, the choir have included some favourites from last year’s folk songs, but the majority of the programme is new. The first half contains some of the most inspirational and moving works in the Russian sacred music repertoire, and contrasts four extracts from Rachmaninov’s 1916 Vespers with pieces written during the previous fifty years. After the interval, we will be able to enjoy a complete contrast, with a selection of spectacular Russian folk songs, exploiting the talents of individual performers, and displaying, for example, the extraordinary range of basso-profundo notes that we associate with the world of Russian choral music.
