Energized by the spirit of Afro-Cuban music, bossa nova, tango, rumba and flamenco, Osvaldo Golijov (b.1960) brings the rich tradition of Latin American music to his interpretation of the final days in the life of Jesus Christ on earth as described in the Bible’s Gospel of Mark.
Critics have hailed it as “a work of genius” and “the first indisputably great composition of the 21st century,” and The New Yorker‘s Alex Ross wrote that it “drops like a bomb on the belief that classical music is an exclusively European art.” Read the New Yorker article.
