Cecilia Bartoli

Cecilia Bartoli´s exploration of the music of Steffani continues on from her best-selling recording ‘Mission’ with an album of the celebrated ‘Stabat Mater’

Steffani's 'Stabat Mater' is his masterpiece, completed shortly before he died in 1728. It has been described as the most powerful expression of his religious fervour and, at almost half an hour, the largest-scale, most complex and heartfelt of his compositions outside his operas. Cecilia Bartoli leads an array of internationally celebrated singers including countertenor Franco Fagioli, the bass Salvo Vitale and the two young German tenors Daniel Behle and Julian Prégardien. Diego Fasolis conducts the authentic instrument forces of
I Barocchisti and the chorus of RSI Lugano.
