work being performed: the little match girl passion

The season of Lent has inspired composers to write some of their most beautiful and poignant works, plumbing the depths of human emotion. This concert presents a meditative collection of musical expressions of the Passion story, from the recently rediscovered Passion Week by Gretchaninov, to the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Little Match Girl Passion by David Lang - a modern-day allegorical take on Medieval mystery plays, in a format inspired by Bach.
