Moving from anguish to exultation, the unparalleled period-instrument Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and its Choir present a stirring program of Baroque masterworks. Featuring radiant soloists, including “ravishing” countertenor Iestyn Davies (Guardian, U.K.), this concert begins with Pergolesi’s exquisite Stabat Mater, a profoundly moving portrait of a mother’s agony resolving in melodic grace. The second half emerges from the depths with Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria, an exuberant hymn of praise.
Pergolesi: Stabat Mater
Vivaldi: Gloria in D major
This concert is also part of Great Performers.
“A performance of slow-burning, propulsive energy.” – Guardian (U.K.) “Iestyn Davies sings with rapturous virtuosity and uncanny beauty.” – Independent (U.K.)
