Programme

Haydn Seven Last Words from the Cross. A short introduction (quartet) followed by seven episodes

with scriptural references.

The seven main meditative sections are based on seven expressions attributed to Jesus during his crucifixion. The seven sections are labelled "sonatas" and are all slow. They are framed by a slow Introduction and a fast "Earthquake" conclusion, for a total of nine movements.

Doors open at 12:15 and the performance starts at 12:45.
