The Stabat Mater also includes certain features borrowed from earlier works such as the Quartet op.2 no.1 of 1761, or the Quintet op.29 no.6 of 1779. By the same token, Boccherini also stole from other works to write the Stabat Mater, including the Quartet op.41 no.1 in C minor included on this album. Written in 1788, the quartet is structured as a cycle (Prestissimo – Tempo di Minuetto – Flebile – Prestissimo), and includes a melody in the minuet’s Trio that is distinctly reminiscent of the ‘Cujus animam’. Moreover, the Flebile reveals substantial borrowing from the final section of ‘Quando corpus morietur’. These connections with the Stabat Mater explain why the Quartet has been included in this recording.
This album is the latest in a series of recordings for Brilliant Classics by the period-instrument group Ensemble Symposium, who have previously recorded chamber music by Telemann (94330), Campagnoli (95037BR) and the Op.26 String Quartets of Boccherini (95302BR), released earlier this year. ‘There are plenty of engaging features in this recording by Ensemble Symposium,’ reported Musicweb International of the Telemann Scherzi Musicali. ‘The playing is attractively textured, well-articulated and closely recorded.’
