New Bottles for Old Wine
Recent decades have witnessed an explosion of interest in contemporary choral music, much of which uses daring new musical structures to rejuvenate classic musical forms, such as the partita, the passion and the motet. This show highlights five masterpieces from the last 50 years: John Adams’ “Harmonium,” Steve Reich’s “Tehillim,” Osvaldo Golijov’s “St. Mark Passion,” David Lang’s
“The Little Match Girl Passion” and Caroline Shaw’s “Partita for Eight Voices."
