New York Polyphony

A compelling meditation for Passion Time

A beautiful evening for lovers of polyphonic singing. The male vocal quartet New York Polyphony makes its debut at the Muziekgebouw. ‘With superb musicianship and vocal allure’ (New York Times), these singers sing the theme of Mary with the crucified Jesus in a dazzling combination of old and new works. Never before has compassion sounded so spectacular and anointing as in this compelling meditation for Passion Time.

Since 2006, the four men of New York Polyphony have been taking international stages by storm. Their impeccable polyphonic singing and soulful performances do not fail to impress. OpusKlassiek called the company’s latest CD, dedicated to Passion Time, ‘devoid of any sentimentality but all the more impressive for that’. Live, New York Polyphony is even more striking.
