New York Public Radio’s WQXR will broadcast the Sunday, March 10 performance of acclaimed composer and Holy Cross professor Osvaldo Golijov’s “St. Mark Passion,” live from Carnegie Hall at 3 p.m. Described by WQXR as “one of the most exciting pieces of 21st-century music,” the premiere of Golijov’s Passion—a retelling of Jesus’ last days, from the Latin American and Jewish perspectives—took the music world by storm when it premiered in 2000 and earned Golijov Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations in 2002.

One of the most prominent and frequently performed composers of our time, Golijov is Loyola Professor of Music at Holy Cross and is continuing his season-long residency as holder of Carnegie Hall’s Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair. In addition to St. Mark Passion, Golijov’s works — known for blending influences from many musical traditions to reflect the multicultural modern world — include the opera Ainadamar, which earned Golijov two Grammy awards in the categories of Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Contemporary Composition; song cycles (notably a set of folksongs titled Ayre); chamber music; and film scores. Golijov is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and was named Musical America’s 2006 Composer of the Year.

In addition to the performance, the live broadcast from Carnegie Hall will include an interview with Golijov during intermission, live chats at WQXR.org, and questions from Twitter (use the hashtag #CHLive). The series will be available in the New York area on 105.9 FM and streaming on WQXR.org.
