LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hour (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

Sunday Afternoon at the Opera: Rachmaninoff, Russian Easter Vesper Mass, Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom,The Miserly Knight
Due to the "Old Style" Julian calendar that Eastern Orthodoxy follows Russian Easter falls on this Sunday. That gives me the opportunity to present one of the treasures of Russian Orthodox choral music, Sergei Rachmaninoff's Russian Easter Vesper Mass, Op. 37 and the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Op.31 (1910). The Liturgy music predates Rachmaninoff's better known All Night Vigil Vespers (1915) for Holy Saturday evening, Op. 37, numbers from which were extracted for concert performance. (Curiously, Rachmaninoff was never an observant Orthodox Christian, but he always loved the Old Slavonic monadic liturgical chants and studied them intensively in preparation for his harmonized choral treatments of them.) The Vespers treatments have been more frequently recorded. I have presented various recordings of the Op. 37 Vespers at Eastertime in years past. On April 14, 1985 I broadcast a liturgically complete recording of Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil music. It was styled Evening Service when it was presented on three Musical Heritage Society LP's. The choral forces in this case were the Johannes Damascenus Choir of Essen and the Choir of the Papal Russian College in Rome. All the music of Op. 31 and what other recordings left out of Op.37 was recorded in 1994 for the Austrian Capriccio label. The recording was made in the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria. Two choral groups participated in the effort, neither of them Russian: the Bulgarian National Choir and the Sofia Orthodox Choir. The two audio CD's and a documentary DVD were issued by Capriccio first in 1996 and again in 2009. I last presented the Mass and Liturgy on Russian Easter Sunday, May 5, 2013.

There will be time remaining to present something else by Rachmaninoff: his hour-long opera in two acts The Miserly Knight (1904) in its 2004 release on a single Chandos silver disc. The Miserly Knight was recorded in studio production in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with Valeri Polyansky directing the Russian State Symphony Orchestra. The Baron, who is the miser, is bass Mikhail Guzhov. The story of the opera Rachmaninoff derived from one of the four "Little Tragedies' of the nineteenth century Russian writer Alexander Pushkin. The sin of greed is the focus of Pushkin's tale. The Miserly Knight from Chandos I aired previously on Sunday, June 22, 2008. (3 hrs., 30 min.)
