Slavyanka Presented an American Premiere
Slavyanka performed concerts in Berkeley - St. Marks Episcopal Church, Palo Alto -First Lutheran Church and San Francisco - Star of the Sea Catholic Church of a major 100 year old Russian masterwork, Konstantin Shvedov's Liturgy. It is a musical setting of the principal service of the Russian Orthodox Church - St. John Chrysostom Liturgy, and had never been performed before in America. While almost entirely unknown to Western audiences, in its musical experimentation and innovation it has its place with the much better known Vespers by his contemporary Sergei Rachmaninoff.
