US Premiere Of Dance Of Life In NYC

17/02/2015
US premiere of Dance of Life in NYC
Under director Vince Peterson, Choral Chameleon, Empire City Men’s Chorus, and, the Choir and Orchestra of St. Paul’s Carroll Street all join together to present the US premiere of composer, Roxanna Panufnik’s hybrid mass/oratorio, Dance of Life - Tallinn Mass. This incredible work is performed in three languages with stunning poetic texts by leading Estonian poets, Doris Kareva and Jurgen Rooste.


The piece is made up of two components: Tallinn Mass is a setting in Latin, with some important phrases reiterated in Estonian. The second is Dance of Life, consisting of nineteen new poems by the above mentioned poets, inspired by the famous 15th century painting by Bernt Notke, “Dance of Death”, in Tallinn’s St. Nicholas Church. All musical ideas are inspired by Estonian culture and folkore – original folksongs from as early as the 1930’s appear, as does the constant presence of the Estonian psaltery, the “kannel”, a traditional Estonian instrument.


There's only two chances to hear this profound work so mark your calendars and get your tickets! The box office is now open.
