Pekka Kostiainen: Triduum paschale (duration 1 h 40 min)

This Good Friday concert presents Pekka Kostiainen’s well-received Easter oratorio Triduum paschale. Its Latin title indicates that it covers three days of the Easter festivities. Opening with a dramatic service for Maundy Thursday, it continues with a sombre Service of the Word for Good Friday and concludes with a jubilant Easter Sunday Mass. The overriding Trinity theme embraces Lutheran chorales, items from the Catholic liturgy and an Orthodox troparion. The oratorio is given a handsome performance by Ville Matvejeff, who conducted the premiere recording of the work, and a raft of distinguished soloists.
