About This Performance
Tan Dun | Water Passion After St. Matthew
A watershed moment for the LA Master Chorale! First performed by the Chorale in 2005, this has been one of our most talked-about concerts ever since. Oscar and Grammy®-Award winning composer Tan Dun creates a transformative sensory experience for choir, chamber ensemble and 10 water bowls illuminated from below and positioned onstage in the shape of a cross. Water drips, flows, bubbles, gurgles, ripples, splashes, hisses and is stirred and struck, recalling the ancient Chinese water rituals from the village where Tan Dun grew up. Newsday calls the Water Passion “a work of captivating visual music and sound meticulously disposed in space. Tan plays with watery symbols of baptism, creation and rebirth.”
