Director’s Notes, Robert Russell: Composed on a poem of the same name by Edgar Allen Poe, Rachmaninoff’s “The Bells” was identified by the composer, along with his “All-Night Vigil,” as his two favorite compositions. Translated into Russian by Donstantin Balmont, many consider “The Bells” to be his secular masterpiece. ChoralArt is pleased to join the Portland Symphony Orchestra for this extraordinary work, not performed in Portland for at least 40 years.
