About

***This is a virtual event***

Penderecki described his four-minute, brass Prelude as a distillation of his childhood memories from the period of German occupation and communist regime that came to dominate Poland after the war, leading to a sense of final liberation. Haydn “translated” the seven last short sentences uttered by Christ from the Cross (according to the gospels of Matthew, Luke and John) into a sequence of seven slow, prayerful, meditative sonatas, framed by an intense introduction and a short, explosive coda. It was commissioned in 1783 for the Good Friday service at the Oratorio de la Santa Cueva, Cádiz.
