About This Performance

To open our 32nd Season, PCMS partners with the Orion Quartet and Robert Levin for a unique approach to Haydn’s magnificent tour de force, Seven Last Words of Our Savior on the Cross. Arranged for string quartet, this intimate account transmits a very direct and honest light from Haydn’s understanding of human nature. “This performance will be an evening of meditations and reflections, in words and music,” the Orion members said of this one-night-only collaboration. “Robert Levin, one of music’s most eloquent performers and most revelatory spokesmen, is also a passionate humanist. Together we will create an experience that promises to be stimulating, thought-provoking, and moving.”

Haydn: Seven Last Words of Our Savior on the Cross, Op. 51
