Scarlatti: Stabat Mater – 2007

Here is a programme entirely devoted to sacred music by Domenico Scarlatti. Four compositions, among which the famous Stabat Mater for ten voices, show the diversity of creative styles of the composer. While he is best know for his fabulous 555 keyboard sonatas, he is also a master of the polyphonic art inherited from the renaissance. In this recording, his writing is sturdily poly-choral as well as gently madrigal and he shows a craftsmanship that has little to envy from his illustrious Johann Sebastian Bach.

“The singing is particularly beautiful or impassioned… in Stabat mater… the group’s voices gloriously expressive while retaining clarity and immaculate coherence…”

—Gramophone

 

“An auspicious début release”

—International Record Review

 

“Ihre Interpretation vereint hohe Intensität und Konzentration mit meditativem, stillem Ausdruck. Eine Aufnahme für alle, die mit einem anderen Aspekt des Werkes Scarlattis und der Musik Roms zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts vertraut werden möchten.”
