The concert will feature the music of Arvo Pärt, including his astonishing musical portrayal of the Shroud of Turin, La Sindone (the Shroud). Elena Kats-Chernin’s Mater and the premiere of Peter Sculthorpe’s Kyrie for cello and strings will make fitting companions for the vocal and instrumental works of Arvo Pärt - the man Peter Sculthorpe calls the 'world’s greatest living composer'.
