Cappella Romana Passion Week Performance a “World-Class Arts Event”
Portland Monthly Magazine has a Spring “Guide to the Season’s World-Class Arts Events” and tabs our April 11th Passion Week concert at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
“In April, vocal ensemble Cappella Romana performs the world premiere of Maximilian Steinberg’s Passion Week, the last major sacred work composed in Russia before Stalin cracked down on religious art. “You don’t find a piece of this scale—in terms of its scope and ambition—in the 1920s,” says artistic director Alexander Lingas. So how exactly did such a work disappear for 88 years?” —Portland Monthly
