Cappella Romana presents Maximilian Steinberg’s Passion Week, a collection of choral hymns for Holy Week in the Russian Orthodox tradition. The last major sacred work to be composed following the imposition of Communism, Passion Week continues the movement in early 20th-century Russia that sought to give new birth to its spiritual and musical roots. Steinberg became the student and son-in-law of Rimsky-Korsakov, a classmate of Stravinsky, and the teacher of Shostakovich.
