For the first time in recorded history, Cappella Romana presents the last major sacred work composed in Russia before Stalin’s 1932 crackdown: Passion Week by Maximilian Steinberg. Composed 1921–26, during the early years of the Soviet Period, artists still had some freedom of travel and programming. However, because of later conditions imposed by Soviets, this work was never performed.

Unlike Gretchaninoff’s similar collection, this Passion Week is based entirely upon Medieval chant melodies, arranged by Steinberg in rich choral textures to underscore their intrinsic power and spirituality. Artistic Director Dr. Alexander Lingas. Performance repeats April 12, 8 pm at St. Joseph’s Parish, 732 18 Ave. East, Seattle, WA, 98112. Tickets: $18 to $36, available at Box Office Tickets.

Pre-concert talks one hour prior to each performance.
