G. Rossini, Stabat Mater

Verdi’s Quartetto and Rossini’s Stabat Mater are unusual items in the output of these two geniuses. We usually think of Verdi as a great composer of lyrical works more than purely instrumental pieces. Similarly, Rossini is considered a champion of opere buffe and not a master of great “frescoes” of sacred music. And yet, here we are, faced with two absolute masterpieces where we can actually sense the grandeur of these composers. By showing us these unexpected skills, they stimulate us to unveil our own hidden talents, to develop them and put them to the service of everybody.

Gianandrea Noseda
