David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion for four singers (each also playing percussion) is a striking dramatization of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of the same name, told within the structural framework of a Bach Passion. Damask Ensemble pairs this masterwork with other music on the subject of release from oppression, including Milhaud’s Six sonnets composés au secret (settings of texts by French Resistance writer Jean Cassou) and adaptations of American slave spirituals by Moses Hogan.

David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion voor vier zangers (die elk percussie spelen) is een indrukwekkende bewerking van Hans Christian Andersen’s sprookje ‘Het meisje met de zwavelstokjes’, in de structuur van een Bach-passie. Damask Ensemble combineert dit meesterwerk met andere muziek over bevrijding van onderdrukking: Milhaud’s Six sonnets composés au secret (arrangementen van teksten door de Franse verzetsschrijver Jean Cassou) en bewerkingen van Amerikaanse slavenliederen door Moses Hogan.
