Concert “The Seven Last Words of Christ” Joseph Haydn
The FRIDAY day 14 April at 20.30, hosting a SACRED CONCERT under the title “The Seven Words of the Lord” of Joseph Haydn, played by Belgian string quartet: zerkalo Quartet. http://www.zerkaloquartet.eu
"The Seven Last Words of Christ" was commissioned by the Church of the Holy Cave of Cadiz Joseph Haydn, which gives an idea of the popularity of the composer in Europe.
"The Seven Last Words of Christ" consists of an introduction and seven slow interludes, corresponding to each of the words of Christ on the cross. The last movement "Earthquake" is the only rapid movement. The play "The Seven Last Words of Christ" was originally composed for string orchestra, but also won his choral version and the chamber quartet, but luckily lately it tends to recover the original version, which it is what we see in this concert.
The work has a great lyricism and reflects a deep feeling, as befits the text on which it is based.
