Pergolesi: Stabat Mater – Rossell: Salve Regina

Pergolesi: Stabat Mater – Rossell: Salve Regina

Giulia Semenzato

Lucile Richardot

Ensemble Resonanz & Riccardo Minasi

Here is the work of a genius who died at the age of twenty-six: Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater is one of the miracles of eighteenth-century sacred music. Nourished by their experience of ‘setting in resonance’ early and contemporary repertories, Riccardo Minasi and the Hamburg musicians shed an astonishingly modern light on these moving pieces, in which the voices of Giulia Semenzato and Lucile Richardot intertwine in the most sublime of communions. The Stabat is echoed by Joan Rossell’s poignant Salve Regina, long attributed to Pergolesi himself.
