Composer: Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolai
Arranger: Dackow, Sandra
Description: In the Russian Orthodox Church, Easter is not only celebrated on a different date than in the West, but also in a different way, which the composer sought to represent in his Russian Easter Overture. This work reflects his fascination with the legends and rituals of early-Christian Russia. The work is based on actual liturgical themes, which Rimsky-Korsakov found in a collection of old Russian Orthodox canticles.
