Antonín Dvorák's Stabat Mater
(There Stood the Mother
), widely considered his greatest choral work, stands as one of the most supremely eloquent and moving settings of the story of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection ever composed. Dvorák wrote his Stabat Mater
during a time when the idea of a parent lamenting the death of a child hit home with particular force -- the composer and his wife had just lost their infant daughter, and would soon after lose both of their other children. Audiences will hear the genius of Dvorák in this continuation of the Music of Budapest, Prague and Vienna
series with Maestro Christoph Eschenbach conducting the orchestra and guest singers Anne Schwanewilms, Nathalie Stutzmann, Steve Davislim and Burak Bilgili lending their voices.
