“Russian Easter Festival Overture” by Rimsky-Korsakov

The “Russian Easter Festival Overture” by Rimsky-Korsakov suggests Easter celebrations can be both ethereal and boisterous. Watch and listen here.

I first heard this a few years ago when at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to hear Dvorak’s 9th Symphony. I know, this symphony is a war horse but Dvorak is my favorite composer and the Overture was one of the first half pieces. I immediately had to go out and purchase it.
