Los Angeles Master Chorale
Lasso’sLagrime di San Pietro
Conductor: Jenny Wong

“Many in the audience, I am sure, will never hear Renaissance music or polyphony the same way again.” Classical Voice

 

ABOUT

“Lagrime is a major accomplishment for the Master Chorale, which sang and acted brilliantly. It is also a major accomplishment for music history.” Los Angeles Times

“This Lagrime was theatrically, poetically, and musically gripping, delving into the work’s emotionality with unabashed commitment.” San Francisco Classical Voice

The illustrious American theatre and opera director Peter Sellars stages this production of the final work of Renaissance polyphony master, Orlando di Lasso. This set of madrigals depicts the seven stages of grief Peter feels after denying knowledge of Jesus Christ on the day of his arrest. Intensely moving.
