Antonín Dvorák: Stabat Mater

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The “Stabat mater” by the Bohemian composer Antonin Dvorák, 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.
Shortly before Dvorák 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. Dvorák 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 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.
