When you Pergolesi is mentioned, two things invariably come to mind: the tragic fate of this supremely talented composer, who died at the age of 26, and his most famous work completed shortly before his death, the Stabat Mater. This masterpiece of Baroque music depicts, with extreme sensitivity, the pain of a mother (the Virgin) mourning the death of her son (Christ). The composer weaves a graceful thread between two solo voices, alternating penetrating dissonances with reassuring consonances. The beauty of the score is complemented by Cecilia Bartoli’s intelligence and unrivalled technical skills, as well as the refined tone and delicate expression of countertenor Carlo Vistoli.
