Gioacchino Rossini

"Stabat Mater"
by Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868)

Heinrich Heine described Ronssin's Music as "deeply experiences and yet naive, adequate to the enormous martyrdom but in the same moment childlike." He felt gracefulness within the very terror and thus understood its visionary character. Only after his carrer as an opera composer, Rossini turned to clerical music. In his compositions he used to mix up traditionel stiles with opera-like gesture to mark the dramatical content of the lyrics. According to the Italian tradition of clerical music Rossine devided the mediaeval sequenz of "Stabat Mater" clearly into solo- and ensemble-sets. The "Stabat Mater" covers as well opera-like as traits of clerical music: sweeping melodies and drifting rhythms combine with sections, composed in old stile.

Series & Edition

P

ublishing Authentic Classical Concerts entails for us capturing and recording outstanding performances and concerts for posterity. The performers, audience, opus and room enter into an intimate dialogue that in its form and expression, its atmosphere, is unique and unrepeatable. It is our aim, the philosophy of our house, to enable the listener to acutely experience every facet of this symbiosis, the intensity of the performance, so we record the concerts in direct 2-Track Stereo digital HD. The results are unparalleled interpretations of musical and literary works, simply - audiophile snapshots of permanent value. Flourishing culture, enthralling the audience and last but not least also you the listener, are the values we endeavor to document in our editions and series.

The concerts at the UNESCO World Heritage Maulbronn Monastery supply the ideal conditions for our aspirations. It is, above all, the atmosphere of the romantic, candle-lit arches, the magic of the monastery in its unadulterated sublime presence and tranquillity that impresses itself upon the performers and audience of these concerts. Renowned soloists and ensembles from the international arena repeatedly welcome the opportunity to appear here - enjoying the unparalleled acoustic and architectural beauty of this World Heritage Site, providing exquisite performances of secular and sacred music, documented by us in our Maulbronn Monastery Edition.

Works, Movements & Tracklist

1. INTRODUZIONE [10:13]
Soli & Chorus
Stabat Mater Dolorosa
Juxta Crucem Lacrimosa
Dum Pendebat Filius.

2. ARIA [5:53]
Tenor
Cujus animam gementem
Contristatam et dolentem
Pertransivit gladius.
O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti;
Quae maerebat et dolebat
Et tremebat, dum videbat
Nati poenas inclyti.

3. DUETT [6:21]
Soprano I & II
Quis est homo, qui non fleret,
Christi matrem si videret
In tanto supplicio?
Quis non posset contristari
Christi Matrem contemplari
Dolentem cum Filio?

4. ARIA [4:49]
Bass
Pro peccatis suae gentis
Vidit Jesum in tormentis
Et flagellis subditum.
Vidit suum dulcem natum
Moriendo desolatum
Dum emisit spiritum.

5. CORO E REZITATIVO [5:16]
Bass & Chorus
Eja, Mater, fons amoris,
Me sentire vim doloris
Fac, ut tecum lugeam.
Fac, ut ardeat cor meum
In amando Christum Deum,
Ut sibi complaceam.

6. QUARTETTO [6:49]
Soli
Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Crucifixi fige plagas
Cordi meo valide.
Tui nati vulnerati,
Tam dignati pro me pati,
Poenas mecum divide.
Fac me vere tecum flere,
Crucifixo condolere,
Donec ego vixero.

Juxta Crucem tecum stare,
Et me tecum sociare
In planctu desidero.
Virgo virginum praeclara,
Mihi jam non sis amara,
Fac me tecum plangere.

7. CAVATINA [4:45]
Soprano II
Fac, ut portem Christi mortem,
Passionis fac consortem,
Et plagas recolere.
Fac me plagis vulnerari,
Crucem hac inebriari,
Ob amorem Filii.

8. ARIA E CORO [4:11]
Soprano I & Chorus
Inflammatus et accensus
Per te, Virgo, sim defensus
In die judicii.
Fac me cruce custodiri,
Morte Christi praemuniri,
Confoveri gratia.

9. QUARTETTO [6:13]
Soli & Chorus
Quando corpus morietur,
Fac, ut animae donetur
Paradisi gloria.

10. FINALE [7:27]
Soli & Chorus
In sempiterua saecula.
Amen.

Review

Wonderfully performed

Gioacchino Rossini turned to religious music later in life and his Stabat Mater is almost opera-like with its sweeping melodies and drifting rhythms. This piece is wonderfully performed in this concert recording in which the glorious Maulbronn Choir, conducted by Jürgen Budday, is joined by soloists Svetlana Strezeva (soprano), Jolanta Michalska-Taliaferro (mezzo soprano), Willi Stein (tenor), Nikita Storojev (bass) and members of the SWR-Symphony-Orchestra Baden-Baden & Freiburg.
