Among all Stabat Maters ever set to music by various composers over the centuries, this Antonín Dvořák´s work holds a special place as the most symphonic one and as the one that was the most clearly written by a classical orchestral composer. It is also one of the most moving Stabat Maters in terms of the personal background of the composer. As such, we can only fully appreciate it by knowing something of the composer’s life in order to understand what exactly he was doing with this highly unusual piece of work that even moves the soloists performing it to the brink of tears.

Interpretation by Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Prague Philharmonic Chorus and vocal soloists, conducted by Wolfgang Sawalisch.

Recorded 1990

    I think his Stabat Mater is one of the most beautiful choral pieces ever :)
