Rossini: Stabat Mater
For their first recording with harmonia mundi, Gustavo Gimeno and the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg revisit Rossini’s famous Stabat Mater.
This work, composed after the premature end of his operatic career, has sometimes been criticised for its element of brilliance and its exceptional vocal refinement. But that is also what makes it a unique and spellbinding work.
The team assembled for this recording have perfectly understood this and dare to present a reading that is as moving as it is exhilarating. The soloists are María Agresta, Daniela Barcellona, René Barbera and Carlo Lepore.
