Classical Voice North America Reviews Passion Week Premiere

IMG_7257Seattle critic, Philippa Kiraly, has a fantastic feature and review of our recent World Premiere performance of Maximilian Steinberg’s Passion Week in Classical Voice North America:

“Sometimes it sounded stern or foreboding, sober or somber, at other times brighter and joyful, or hypnotic, peaceful, and uplifting, or solemn and reverential, even exalted in Great Saturday’s canon. It’s a beautiful work to hear. … Cappella Romana often sings without vibrato, but at times during Passion Week, it used a little as affect, creating shimmering chords. Since its inception in 1991, the group has been performing, with expert scholarship, Orthodox music from medieval times to today’s new works. The choristers have a deep understanding of how to sing it, while the ensemble’s rich but pure sound, excellent pitch sense, and expressive capabilities make their performances not to be missed.” —Philippa Kiraly, Classical Voice North America
