For Immediate Release

In its tradition of celebrating such innovative contemporary composers as John Adams and Louis Andriessen, Great Performers presents �The Passion of Osvaldo Golijov,� a month-long festival exploring the evocative work of Argentine-American composer Osvaldo Golijov. With the participation of many of the composer�s closest artistic collaborators, including soprano Dawn Upshaw, the Kronos and St. Lawrence String Quartets, clarinetists Todd Palmer and David Krakauer, conductor Robert Spano, and Argentine musician, composer and writer Gustavo Santaolalla, the festival features performances of chamber works, song settings, an oratorio and opera by the composer, and music � classical, klezmer, tango � that has shaped Golijov�s distinctive musical voice.

�The Passion of Osvaldo Golijov,� which runs from January 22 to February 22, includes:

� The New York premiere of Golijov�s opera Ainadamar (�Fountain of Tears�), inspired by the life and work of Federico Garc�a Lorca (Jan. 22, 24 and 26)
� Two performances of his acclaimed oratorio La Pasi�n Seg�n San Marcos, which infuses the traditional musical setting of the Passion with indigenous Latin American rhythm and song (Feb. 20, 21)
� Golijov chamber music performed by the Kronos Quartet, on a program which also features Dawn Upshaw singing his latest work, Ayre, a collection of songs ranging from Sephardic folk tunes to Semitic electronica to Arabic poetry (Feb. 4)
� The St. Lawrence String Quartet and guest artists performing Golijov works infused with Jewish folk and liturgical music, Yiddishbbuk and The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind (Feb. 8)
� Three late-night concerts celebrating the wide-range of Golijov influences, from klezmer to contemporary and classic tango (Feb. 2, 3 and 4).
� A discussion about the process of composing for film with Golijov and Gustavo Santaolalla (Feb. 22)

Tickets are available via CenterCharge, 212-721-6500, at the Alice Tully and Avery Fisher Box offices, 65th Street and Broadway and on Lincoln Center�s website, www.lincolncenter.org.
