Range In the silence of the secret night

In the silence of the secret night, a setting by Afanasiy Fet, was composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff in 1890. It is the third lied of his song cycle, 6 Romances.

In 1890, year where the melody was composed, Rachmaninoff is barely seventeen. He is training at the Moscow Conservatoire and falls in love with Vera, the youngest daughter of the Skalon family, living close by. As Vera’s mother forbids any contact between the two, Rachmaninoff writes many romances he hands over to Vera’s oldest sister. He dedicated in the silence of the night, setting a text by Afansij Afanas’evic Fet, to Vera Dmitriyevna Skalon.

Although, this melody is an early work, it already demonstrates Rachmaninoff’s individual sense of harmony and lyrical composition style. The restrained passion expressed in the words of the poem is figured by an elastic, obsessive melody at the vocal line. The accompaniment and vocal line cross each other with ascending and descending phrases, creating sophisticated and expressive dissonances. The pulsing triplet motifs at the piano, open and conclude the song, leading us through the darkness of the night.
