Arvo Pärt – Passio
Like a closely-constructed ritual where the dramatics stem from simplicity and pure sound. These words have been used to describe Arvo Pärt’s extensive choir composition Passio (1982), which the Helsinki Chamber Choir will perform in honour of the 85th birthday of this great Estonian composer. In addition to the choir, the Passion of Christ is interpreted by a solo vocal quartet, two solo voices as Jesus and Pontius Pilate and a small chamber orchestra. Passio is considered the culmination of Pärt’s own musical language, the the punctual tintinnabuli style.
