About

Marianism is the fil rouge that unites the world famous compositions presented in this CD. From the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi through the Nisi Dominus and the Sinfonia ‘Al Santo Sepolcro’ by Antonio Vivaldi, it is the Virgin’s lament that guides the two composers in the realization of what are among their most renowned and heartfelt works. According to a widely known legend, Pergolesi died the day he completed Stabat Mater: but whether true or not, the diffusion of the Stabat was immediate, European-wide and highly acclaimed. This work set the stylistic standards for ‘modern’ sacred music in the Age of Enlightenment for the whole of the West.

Performed here under the direction of Federico Ferri by an exceptional cast, which includes Silvia Frigato and Sara Mingardo together with Ferri’s Accademia degli Astrusi, this live performance from 2010 is a masterpiece not to be missed.
