Award-winning poet and performer Denice Frohman joins the Aizuri Quartet for The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross
, Haydn's profound account of Christ's final utterances at Calvary. Commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday services at a church in Cádiz, Spain and later adapted for string quartet, Haydn's work originally featured a priest interpreting the titular words attributed to Jesus. In this updated version, Frohman replaces those words with new poems—all written especially for The Met performance.
