Notes & Reviews:
Since its release in 1990, this critically acclaimed modern instrument performance of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater has remained a staple in Deutsche Grammophon's prestigious catalogue for many reasons. Conductor Claudio Abbado's intensity and rigorous attention to orchestral detail throughout is astonishing- all brought to fruition by an inordinately highly-responsive LSO. Vocal soloists soprano Margaret Marshall and mezzo-soprano Lucia Valentini-Terrani as well are perfectly matched in both tone and timbre delivering equally inspired performances. The sound is also remarkably good with plenty of warmth and presence.
