Osvaldo Golijov blew open the boundaries between musical genres at the start of this century, with his influential, genre-defying La Pasión según San Marcos. A genius who embraces a wide-range of influences, Golijov’s newest dramatic work brings together Delta blues, Hebrew chant, Central Asian ballads and the mournful eloquence of Schubert. This is music for our time. Golijov draws inspiration from Israeli author David Grossman’s Falling Out of Time; part play, part poem, part fable, the book narrates a journey “out of time” – a tale of grief and the transformative journey to acceptance. A powerful universal message of healing and humanity is conveyed through this collaborative performance which brings together an astounding ensemble, with each musician renowned for their virtuosity as soloists.
