Certain iconic works define the reputations of their creators; others provide rare glimpses into the art of minor masters who might otherwise be forgotten. This program spotlights one of classical music’s all-time favorites plus a gloriously operatic setting of the Stabat Mater, an ancient hymn to the Virgin Mary, which made audiences weep at its first performance in 1736. Bridging the gap between sorrow and bliss, Signature Works conjures a world of enlightened expression, with something for everyone.
