Cecilia Bartoli (2G)

From heart to heart

14 December 2021, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

They exist, these works that speak directly to the heart. And from the first bars of Pergolesi's "Stabat mater" it is clear that the setting of the Marian poem belongs to this category of works - no one needs a music-theoretical explanation or a translation of the Latin text to understand the sorrow, the pain felt here. Legends have often linked the famous composition directly to Pergolesi's own much too early death - as if the latter had taken the pen from the musician's hand, who was suffering from tuberculosis. But such dramatic exaggeration is not necessary to recognise the significance of the composition with its unique bass line and the unusual instrumentation, a high and a low female voice. And when a soulful interpreter like Cecilia Bartoli takes on the work with her excellent ensemble from Monaco, the music will speak for itself in its touching purity.
