The Gates of Jerusalem
St. Christopher Chamber Orchestra/ Aidija Chamber Choir / Donatas Katkus
Catalog number 21003
In this work the Lithuanian composer Bronius Kutavicius, sometimes ironically called the “last pagan composer”, presents a geographical panorama of religious rites from various parts of the world, taking as his starting point the cultural influences on the city of Jerusalem, which has three city gates on each of its four sides.
“Bronius Kutavicius is gradually winning a group of fans in the centre of Europe.”
Martin Demmler in FonoForum:
“The artistic interpretation of these “echoes of the ancient world cultures” by the St. Christopher Chamber Orchestra and the Aidija Chamber Choir from Vilnius has a high degree of authenticity.”
