Dvořák Stabat Mater

We know that Dvořák began working on the Stabat Mater soon after the death of his second child, an infant daughter named Josefa, in September 1875. In August 1877, his third child, a daughter named Ruzena, died by accidentally drinking poison. On September 8, his eldest child, a son named Otakar, died of smallpox. Dvorak, now childless, completed the Stabat Mater on November 13, 1877. This work is full of grief - the mind and emotions of a father who’s world is falling apart.  

This evening the Ceramic City Choir perform the original version for piano, chorus and vocal quartet.

Tickets: £12, £5 (students)
