Robert Hollingworth with I Fagiolini in new December project

Posted on 14 December 2012

Gramophone Award-winning vocal ensemble-in-residence I Fagiolini presents Bach’s ‘Jesu, meine Freude’ alongside David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Little Match Girl Passion.

Hans Christian Andersen’s heartbreaking story is told through Lang’s minimalist score for voices and simple percussion: the whole is enhanced by exquisite shadow puppetry and video projection by Matthew Robins. Threading the works together are delicate and evocative carols from Germany and Denmark, creating a poignant yuletide story.
