One of only three choral works by Rachmaninov, the All-Night Vigil (or Vespers) stands at the pinnacle of the sacred music of the Russian Orthodox tradition.

$48 – $75

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes changed the history of ballet and the history of music too. Stravinsky composed all of his early landmark ballet scores for Diaghilev’s company, including Petrushka.
