Sofia Vokalensemble performs Kanon Pokajanen by Arvo Pärt

“Kanon Pokajanen is often called Arvo Pärt’s greatest masterpiece. It is a meditative musical journey toward the point of silence which is always the Estonian composer’s ultimate goal. The tone is harsh and melancholic, like a heavy snowfall at dusk somewhere between winter and spring. Yet, this is one of the most beloved compositions in contemporary choral music. Perhaps because the seriousness of the music has a liberating effect. After all the tribulations, a great calm awaits.” – Eric Schüldt

Sofia Vokalensemble performs the masterpiece Kanon Pokajanen in its entirety, and the concert is hosted by the award-winning presenter and music journalist, Eric Schüldt.

Welcome to Sofia Church in Stockholm on Sunday, March 24th at 18:00.
