Rossini: Stabat mater

150 years after the composer's death the Bavarian Radio Chorus and the Munich Radio Orchestra under the direction of Howard Arman present a recording of Gioachino Rossinis "Stabat mater". Rossini composed choral music only occasionally. The little he did compose, however, has benefitted from a precise and deeply felt lyrical interpretation, a mastery that was honed at musical theatres. After his spectacular farewell from the world of the opera he created the "Stabat mater" in the years 1831/32 and 1838-41. It was performed complete for the first time in Paris on 7 January 1842 with great success.
