Disc No: CYP1639 Following Pergolesi, several Italian composers inclined to set the text of Stabat Mater in music in a modern style, going away of the baroque manners and conquering new fields, where opera and sacred music would live happily together. The new CD of Stradivaria for Cypres conveys the listener to Napoli, Padua and Torino, between 1750 and 1770: three discoveries, among which the least surprising is certainly not that of a somber and reflective Tartini, in a score that illustrates his retreat from the road of public success. Abos on the other hand, a Maltese of Spanish extraction, is a pure product of Durante and the Neapolitan School. His muse reminds of Pergolesiís, while Gasparini, a pupil of Padre Martini, was the maestro di cappella of the Cathedral of Torino. His Stabat Mater was deservedly renowned, but fell into oblivion during the XIXth Century. By Stradivaria, this is a new, great feast of music under patronage of musicology.
