Passio with Hebrides Ensemble — Live BBC Radio 3 Broadcast

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free

Please note that this event will now take place as a live broadcast from St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh on BBC Radio 3.

Exquisitely restrained yet indescribably intense, Arvo Pärt’s Passio is a modern masterpiece. This hour-long setting of St John’s Gospel draws upon some of the earliest settings of the passion story to reframe and distil its message for modern listeners. Interpolating passages for solo voices and choral ensembles, we are never far away from familiar passion territory and yet, with Pärt’s characteristic vocal candour and pared-down orchestration, it is a work that somehow remains timelessIn a Dunedin Consort first, we are delighted to be joining forces with Hebrides Ensemble in presenting this meditative and inescapably moving work to audiences across Scotland.
