A passionate and sensitive performance of Haydn's famous work The Seven Last Words.
This is the debut Linn recording by the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, an ensemble that gained international fame when they became the first ever group to perform and record all fifteen of Shostakovich's quartets.
The Seven Last Words was originally an orchestral work which provided the musical interludes depicting each of Christ's final statements and the Priest's meditations thereon. The Fitzwilliam String Quartet perform here on original instruments.
