Heart-wrenching, dramatic and deeply moving: Dvorak’s Stabat Mater.
Antonín Dvořák Stabat Mater
Conductor: Harry Sever
Mezzo Sporano: Hanna Hipp
Soprano: Esther Mallett
Tenor: Tom Smith
Bass: Tristan Hambleton
Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra
Cambridge Philharmonic Chorus
A meeting of opera and oratorio, this theatrical setting of religious texts brought Dvorak’s devout Catholicism together with the unmistakable dramatic style of Czech repertoire of the time.
A masterpiece of the choral repertoire, this was Dvorak’s first major sacred work, sketched and completed soon after all three of his children died in infancy. The grand, symphonic scale of the work does nothing to diminish the heart-wrenching and deeply moving emotion conveyed through the virtuosic vocal writing for a quartet of soloists with chorus and orchestra.
