While Barber and Gabrieli’s music was always meant for brass instruments, Lauridsen’s choral masterpiece has lost none of its uplifting power in this spectacular and unusual brass arrangement.
Commissioned to provide music for each ‘last word’ of Jesus for an unusual Easter tradition, this is Haydn at his most daring – and most dramatic. “Each movement,” he declared, will move listeners, “to the very depths of [their] soul.”

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, we will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates than we have in previous seasons. This will allow us to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.
