Description:

The Little Match Girl Passion is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous tale about a poverty-stricken young woman sent out into the cold by her father to sell matches. The girl’s bitter present is locked together with the sweetness of her past memories. David Lang has written his own text and set it to music for four voices, who tell the story while simultaneously commenting upon it, thereby placing us in the middle of the action. The program also features a world premiere by Canadian composer James Rolfe for voices and accordion.
