In collaboration with Christopher Watson and the Choir of ӣƵ, Melbourne, the Song Company presents Arvo Pärt Passio. 

The music of Arvo Pärt shimmers like the surface of the sea in sunlight: there is almost infinite and unpredictable detail: “Tintinnabuli is the mathematically exact connection from one line to another... ...tintinnabuli is the rule where the melody and the accompaniment [accompanying voice]...is one. One plus one, it is one – it is not two. This is the secret of this technique.” In Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi secundum Joannem Arvo Pärt divides the text of the St John Passion into a narrative sung by the Evangelist Quartet with accompanying instrumental quartet, and dialogue by Jesus, Pilate and other characters sung by the soloists and chorus with organ.

Date: Friday 12 April 2019

Time: 7.30pm
