Regarded as one of the greatest works of the first decade of this century, Osvaldo Golijov’s thrilling work is a unique chronicle of the Passion of St. Mark. It combines multiple influences and relies heavily on voices and percussion in styles familiar in Cuba and Brazil. the work was hailed as ground-breaking at its 2000 world-premiere and continues to inspire new audiences. “The Passion According to St. Mark is by turns a classical Passion (following in the footsteps of Bach) and cross- cultural fiesta, incorporating traditional Western choral sing- ing with Afro-Cuban beats, tango and Brazilian capoeira. This piece turns the traditional Passion on its head and gives it a spin or two. It’s a brilliant reminder that classical music isn’t a dead-white-guys-only world.”—NPR this all-new studio recording includes recent revisions by the composer and re-unites the forces that were used at the world-premiere performance.
