Featuring a collaboration between Seraphic Fire and the Spektral Quartet

Composed by Franz Joseph Haydn for the grand Holy Week celebrations of the Cathedral in Cadiz, Spain, Haydn’s Seven Last Words is a sumptuous feast of Classical choral and string writing. With aching adagios and passionate, plaintive singing, the Seven Last Words is at the pinnacle of Haydn’s considerable output. For this once-in-a-decade performance, the singers of Seraphic Fire are joined by the Spektral Quartet, an ensemble that Time Out Chicago calls a “chamber supergroup.” Be in the audience to listen to the musical alchemy that occurs when two of the nation’s most cutting-edge chamber groups combine to perform a consummate musical masterpiece.
