Pergolesi’s STABAT MATER

Christian Curnyn, Conductor 
Anna Devin Soprano 
Sharon Carty (Artist in Association) Mezzo Soprano

Van Wassenaer Concerto no.5, F minor
Respighi Antiche danze ed arie per liuto, suite III 
Puccini Crisantem
Pergolesi Stabat Mater  

The Concerto by Van Wassenaer, originally attributed to Pergolesi, brims with ground-breaking harmony and melody. It’s the perfect companion to Pergolesi’s symbolic Stabat Mater performed by Sharon Carty and Anna Devin.  This beautiful setting of the 13th-century hymn to Mary at the foot of the cross is a deeply personal meditation, written by the 26-year-old dying Pergolesi.  It takes us to the very heart of human passion.  Respighi’s captivating and expressive Ancient Airs and Dances No. 3 is a shining example of how brilliantly he brings a modern twist to ancient dance melodies.   Puccini’s elegiac Chrysanthemums, adds colour and warmth in this beautifully poignant movement.
