Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Dvorák's solemnly lyrical setting of the Stabat Mater is one of the glories of 19th-century choral music, and this has always been regarded as one of its finest performances. Rafael Kubelík had few equals in this repertoire, and he knew just how to achieve the maximum of expression with a minimum of hesitation and dragging--critical in a work that is largely meditation and sorrowful reflection. A twofer price, this is the version to have. --David Hurwitz

Sound quality is reasonably good.

Dvorak is most known for his last symphonies, slavonic dances and some outstanding chamber music, but he wrote some very good religious music as well.
EAK
The one criticism I have for this Dvorak Stabat is that only seven of the ten cantatas fit on one CD.

Rafael Kubelik has been able to interpret Antonin Dvorak's Stabat Mater and to preserve the sanctities of such a thirteenth century Roman Catholic sequence.

The 'Laudi' - songs written in praise of God - are attributed to Pope Innocent III and/or to Friar Jacopone da Todi, - member of Franciscan's religious order that originally relied solely on alms -
Stabat Mater goes as far back as the thirteenth century. Gospel subjects have always been ready for dramatization when written in Latin. Its title is an abbreviation of the first line, Stabat mater dolorosa ("The sorrowful mother was standing"). The hymn, one of the most powerful surviving medieval poems, contemplate the suffering of Mary, Jesus Christ's mother, during His crucifixion .

Many composers have been assigned the merit to set to music this heavenly hymn - Hayden, Vivaldi, Rossini, and Scarlatti and even Verdi .... Many more .... , but I truly loved Dvorak's composition. This sacred work was Dvorak's first creation in the darkness of death. He completed it in 1877 amid a personal tragedy - he lost his three children due to illness or accident.

Away from all human contacts, Dvorak formed in his mind's eye his own private picture of the great Songs that never failed to coincide with his own excruciation.

While the best stabat mater ever writen is Pergolesi's, there are a some other good ones (especially by Rossini, Dvorak and Haydn). Dvorak is most known for his last symphonies, slavonic dances and some outstanding chamber music, but he wrote some very good religious music as well. Many listeners who want to taste Dvorak's religious music will prefer to start with his great requiem (on DG conducted by Karel Ancerl), but there is also much fine music in the stabat mater. Dvorak expert Kubelik conducts four excellent soloists in this first choice performance of this stabat mater.

To J. Harris, Memphis.

The recording you are seeking is still available on Amazon.

It is this one conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch with Gabriela Benackova, Peter Dvorsky, Jan-Hendrik Rootering, Ortrun Wenkel.

It is absolutely glorious as weel as the Dvorak's Requiem with the same team.

Hardly understand why have not been reviewed yet. In my opinion there is not better recording available.

One of the 19th-centuries best sacred works, Antonin Dvorak's Stabat mater is a very long and ambitious 10-movement work that approaches an hour and a half in length and opens with a long and complex opening "Dolorosa" movement that is the length of many Stabat mater settings just by itself. The music is often stunningly beautiful. I find the duet for soprano and tenor (no. 8, "Fac ut portem") just lovely and the passion behind the climactic opening passage of the opening "Dolorosa" stunning. Dvorak is truly at his best here.

I've been re-listening to Dvorak's music recently - a great way to spend one's time! - and the period immediately following his appointment as a church organist in Prague in 1875 - the first when he had any financial security after a poverty-stricken early career - showed a blooming of this artist's creativity. The "Stabat mater" was conceived and finished (1877) in the midst of this period, a period which mixed professional success with the tragedy of the early death of Dvorak's daughter, an inspiring event for the piece.

How is the performance by Kubelik and his Bavarian Raio Orchestra? It's OK. I have had an uneven experience with Kubelik's performances. They are at once quite musical but often Kubelik just doesn't take enough care. In line with this view, the "Stabat mater" receives a performance that is sometimes very fine and other times lacking in passion or executional precision. An example of this lack of attention to detail is the humdrum way the woodwind players take up an unaccompanied passage bear the beginning of the bass solo (no. 4), which shows an orchestra and conductor not fully committed to making the performance first class.
