Russian Easter Festival Overture: Overture on Liturgical Themes, Op. 36 (Svetliy prazdnik, also known as the Great Russian Easter Overture) is a concert overture written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov between 1887-8, and dedicated to the memories of Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander Borodin, two members of the group of composers known as "The Five". It is the last of the composer's series of three exceptionally brilliant orchestral works, preceded by Capriccio Espagnol and Scheherazade. The work received its premiere at a Russian symphony concert in St. Petersburg in late December 1888.
