About AAF: Lagrime Di San Pietro
Orlando di Lasso’s heavenly masterpiece soars to breathtaking new heights in this spine-tingling a cappella performance by the outstanding Los Angeles Master Chorale, devised by renowned theatre director Peter Sellars.
An achingly beautiful choral work, Lagrime di San Pietro was the great Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso’s final and most famous composition. Completed just before his death, it conveys a powerful sense of mortality while vividly illuminating the biblical story of St Peter through a profoundly moving cycle of 20 madrigals (songs).
Exclusively in NZ for Auckland Arts Festival, experience the emotional riches of di Lasso’s crowning glory and the supreme talents of one of the world’s finest choral ensembles – Los Angeles Master Chorale – in perfect harmony.
“[A] stunning performance … a triumph.” — Sydney Morning Herald
“A major accomplishment for music history.” — Los Angeles Times
