    Description: The Little Match Girl Passion

    Elizabeth Scott conducts Sydney Philharmonia Choir's young adult choir VOX in David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion - a hope-filled reflection on a tragic fable.

    David Lang’s Pulitzer prize-winning oratorio The Little Match Girl Passion views Hans Christian Andersen’s dark tale through the lens of Bach’s St Matthew Passion. Find the passion in this timeless narrative of suffering and hope, elevated to a higher plane with breathtaking music that resonates with emotional power.

    “Woven into a luminous, ever-moving tapestry, its vocal lines evoke a fragile world full of soaring hope and ominous shadows.” - The Classical Review
