  • Dvořák: Stabat Mater
  • Antonín Dvořák (1841 – 1904) was born in Nelahozeves, Czechia. After the death of his daughter Josefa in 1875, Dvořák composed the initial version of his Stabat Mater for four soloists, choir, and piano. He then set the work aside without orchestrating it. Soon after this, he lost two more children in 1877. At this point he returned to the manuscript abandoned the previous year. Nonetheless his Stabat Mater ends in a major key, as if in expression of hope. The style is a mixture of symphonic poem, German oratorio and Italian opera, but still it is written from the heart.
