“Lagrime is a major accomplishment for the Master Chorale, which sang and acted brilliantly. It’s also a major accomplishment for music history.”
—Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
Founded in 1964 by conductor Roger Wagner and now led by Grant Gershon, the Los Angeles Master Chorale is a resident company of Walt Disney Concert Hall. Recognized for its distinctive sound and distinguished repertoire, the choir presents a dramatic staging by Peter Sellars of the late-Renaissance masterpiece by Orlando di Lasso. With each madrigal set to the poetry of Luigi Tansillo (1510–1568), the 75-minute a cappella rendition lays bare the seven stages of grief suffered by St. Peter after disavowing Jesus Christ.
Viewed through a contemporary lens and the extraordinary mind of Sellars, the work achieves an emotional pitch that has earned recognition and acclaim worldwide.
Lagrime di San Pietro ismade possible with generous underwriting from the Lovelace Family Trust and is dedicated to the memory of Jon Lovelace in honor of the special friendship he shared with director Peter Sellars.
