CANCELLED due to Coronavirus - Dvoráks Stabat Mater

Programme

  • Dvořák Stabat Mater

Antonín Dvo?ák lost three of his children between 1875 and 1877. He expressed his grief in his Stabat Mater, in which Mary mourns the death on the cross of her son Jesus. But just as with the memory of children, there is also room for cheerful tones among all the sad sounds. Dvo?ák makes the choir and the four soloists sound sometimes desperate, sometimes resigned. In this way they penetrate to the deepest of our souls: we hear sincere mourning. But by a child of his time: the work is grandly conceived, romantically and sometimes sumptuously toned, with theatrical touches here and there.
