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 timeless. We are delighted to be joining forces with the extraordinary vocal talents of Dunedin Consort in presenting this meditative and inescapably moving work to audiences across Scotland.
Pre-concert conversation with Jo Buckley and Will Conway at 7pm.
