Canon of Repentance
15 February @ 8pm

For the first time in Australia audiences will be treated to a performance of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s transcendent Kanon Pokajanen. Memorialised in a recording that has been hailed by Gramophone as ‘faultless’ this rarely heard work is based on sixth-century chants sung at daybreak in Orthodox monasteries.
