Overview

Regarded as one of the greatest works of the first decade of this century, Osvaldo Golijov's thrilling La Pasion Segun San Marcos 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.

This all-new studio recording includes recent revisions by the composer and re-unites the forces that were used at the world-premiere performance. In addition to the two-CD audio recording, a DVD filmed at the 2008 Holland Festival gives the complete visual impact of this work in this deluxe package. From the Label
