Ensemble Aurora, on historical instruments

The moving text of the “Stabat Mater” has been an inspiration to many composers from the Renaissance onwards. Luigi Boccherini, a virtuoso cellist and master of chamber music, composed this religious work with profound respect for the text and it’s identity. The quintet Ensemble Aurora that accompanies the solo soprano possesses all the qualities of balance and homogeneity common to the best chamber music works at the end of the Classical period – with an astonishing blend between voice and instruments. Featuring internationally renowned soprano and baroque music specialist Gemma Bertagnolli.
Recorded in the Basilica della Santa Casa, Loreto, April 7, 2011 and in the Basilica di San Lorenzo, Florence, April 9, 2011.

Repertoire

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Adagio and Fugue in C minor, K. 546 (1788); Luigi Boccherini: Stabat Mater, G.532, First version for soprano and string quintet (1781)
