description

Raffael Hall serves as atmospheric backdrop when renowned vocal ensemble Odhecaton and the four tenors of the Sardinian confraternity Su Concordu 'E Su Rosariu raise their voices. These singings still accompany Holy Week on Sardinia and they continue a polyphonic folk art known as »canto a tenore«, the incredible tonal range of which is the main reason why it was made UNESCO world heritage. However, the concert conjoins two very different worlds: the Sardinian Passion singings and the refined vocal polyphony by the Franco-Flemish master composers. Yet, they are animated by the same spirit. It's this music's meditative width and its touching intensity that makes this meeting the experience it is.

Event is in the past.
