Pergolesi: Stabat Mater
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Speaking of the title work, a magnificently abstract work of Pergolesi, the sheer beauty of the music belies the text. Sholl, Bonney, Rousset, and Les Talens Lyriques have created an intimate, precise performance. The sophistication is very satisfying. I haven't tired of this recording in the five years I've owned it.
Review on Stabat Mater (Pergolesi)
I just bought an interpretation of the Stabat Mater( Christophe Rousset, Andreas Scholl, Barbara Bonney) and I've only listened to a bit of it. But it is absolutely gorgeous! Mr. Scholl has the best voice I've ever heard; he always keeps it perfectly balanced---check out his recordings of Bach's St. Matthew Passion and Mass in B Minor.
I've heard of the famous Stabat Mater before-----Pergolesi's is perhaps the most moving 'Stabat Mater' in history. I'd recommend this recording to anyone who is a lover of Scholl or Pergolesi; some parts are a bit operatic, but it's still beautiful.
