Dvořák Stabat Mater

9th December 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£15.

Heart-wrenching, dramatic and deeply moving: Dvořák’s Stabat Mater. “… a work in which dramatic outbursts alternate with passages full of tenderness, closing with an ecstatic vision of resurrection.” Antonín Dvořák  Stabat Mater Conductor: Harry Sever Soloists:  Soprano: Esther Mallett Mezzo Soprano: Hanna Hipp Tenor: Tom Smith Bass: Tristan Hambleton Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra Cambridge Philharmonic Chorus A meeting of opera and oratorio, this theatrical setting of religious texts brought Dvořák’s devout Catholicism together with the unmistakable dramatic style of Czech repertoire of the time. A masterpiece of the choral repertoire, this was Dvořák’s first major sacred work, sketched and completed soon after all three of his children died in infancy. Dramatic outbursts alternate with passages full of tenderness.

The grand, symphonic scale of the work does nothing to diminish the heart-wrenching and deeply moving emotion conveyed through the virtuosic vocal writing for a quartet of soloists with chorus and orchestra. PRE-CONCERT TALK Cambridge Philharmonic invites you to a pre-concert talk… 6.50 – 7.10pm (the concert will commence at 7.30pm) Our Music director Harry Sever will discuss the programme for the evening – Antonín Dvořák – Stabat Mater. A work in which dramatic outbursts alternate with passages full of tenderness, closing with an ecstatic vision resurrection. Please note this talk is for concert ticket holders only.
