Program Notes

The Symphonic Dances, Op. 45, is an orchestral suite in three movements. Completed in 1940, it is Sergei Rachmaninoff's last composition. The work summarizes Rachmaninoff's compositional output. The work is fully representative of the composer's later style with its curious, shifting harmonies, the almost Prokofiev-like grotesquerie of the outer movements and the focus on individual instrumental tone colors throughout. The Dances allowed him to indulge in a nostalgia for the Russia he had known, as well as to effectively sum up his lifelong fascination with ecclesiastical chants.
