Dvorak, Antonin - Stabat mater for soloists, choir and piano - Drake, Julius

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
The “Stabat mater” by the Bohemian composer Antonin Dvorak, well-known in its later orchestral version, was initially composed with piano accompaniment. This rarely-heard original version has now been recorded for this new CD from BR-KLASSIK, featuring the excellent Bavarian Radio Chorus under the direction of Howard Arman, and accompanied by Julius Drake on the piano. The young Dvorak was a well-studied and experienced church musician. Having graduated from the organ school in Prague, he spent three pious years as an organist in the city’s St. Adalbert’s Church. The search for a “truly sacred music” preoccupied him from the very start. The contemporary Caecilian Movement for church music reform led him, like many of his colleagues, to re-examine the Palestrina style, which represented a return to the more modest, less ostentatious and yet at the same time contrapuntally ingenious church music of a previous epoch. He duly composed a ”Stabat mater” without orchestral splendour and with a simple piano accompaniment. Shortly before Dvorak wrote down this first version of his ”Stabat mater” between February 19 and May 7, 1876, a heavy blow had struck the young family. On December 19, 1875, his daughter Josefa died two days after she was born. (It was only in August 1877 that the composer returned to the ”Stabat Mater” again, orchestrated the work, and completed it on November 13. The premiere of that later version took place on December 23, 1880 in Prague). – Dvorak did not set all the verses of the hymn to music, and chose an ensemble of four soloists, a choir and a piano. This original version from the spring of 1876, with its seven-movement structure, is not a fragment, draft or piano reduction but an independent and self-contained work in its own right. In the autumn of 1877, when he composed the missing four verses and scored his ”Stabat mater” for a large orchestra, he effectively created a new and different work. • Complete recording of the rarely-heard original version from 1876 with piano accompaniment • Distinguished soloists and the regularly acclaimed Bavarian Radio Choir under the direction of Howard Arman • Accompanied by the great lied pianist Julius Drake • Recording of a recent concert on March 2, 2019 in Munich’s Prinzregententheater
