As his end on the cross approaches, Jesus Christ raises his voice seven times. His voice connects with the body, with the human, with doubt. Joseph Haydn set these last words into music as musical codes, they shimmer through the composition, needing no syllable. Eight adagios without a pause.
The famous German chamber orchestra, Ensemble Resonanz, will perform this masterpiece combined with short texts from renowned author Wolfgang Herrndorf („Tschick“), who spent the last year of his life creating the blog „Work and Structure“: a collection of last words in our time.
