Lotte joins Australian ensemble Hallelujah Junction, led by Jonathan Grieves-Smith, for a performance of David Lang's incredible Little Match Girl Passion at the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival in Victoria, Australia. Lang takes Bach’s St Matthew Passion as a model for this serenely refined setting of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy-tale, replacing Jesus with the tragic little girl to, as Lang puts it, “elevate her sorrow to a higher plane”. Like all Passions, it tells its story while simultaneously commenting on it – asking us to inspect our own relationship with a compassionate society. Details of the performance can be found here.
