NYC Premiere of St. Matthew Passion

“Unique in the history of contemporary music, in its musicality, its variety and coherence, and its emotional and spiritual depth.” ~ EWTN Television

Russian Orthodox Christian composer and churchman Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev will present his fresh and original St. Matthew Passion, a profound piece of sacred concert music that combines Gospel narrative with liturgical texts of the Orthodox Church.

Concert lovers in Moscow, Rome, Melbourne, and Toronto have already greeted performances of the work with standing ovations.  Now, a New York City audience will have the same opportunity to hear this moving composition, which describes the Passion of Jesus Christ according to the Gospel of St. Matthew through an exquisite interplay of soloists, choir, and orchestra.
On Monday, February 7, 2011, St. Vladimir’s Seminary will present the U.S. English-language premiere of the piece at 7:30 p.m. at The Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Columbus Avenue, between 59th and 60th Streets, New York City.
