Pergolesis “Stabat Mater” In Der Thomaskirche

Pergolesis “Stabat Mater” in der Thomaskirche

Das “Stabat Mater” wurde wahrscheinlich im 13. Jahrhundert verfasst. Viele bedeutende Komponisten haben es vertont, von Josquin Desprez und Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina bis hin zu Krzystof Penderecki und Arvo Pärt. Aber die wohl berühmteste Fassung stammt aus den 30er Jahren des 18. Jahrhunderts.

Als Giovanni Battista Pergolesi 1736 in einem Franziskanerkloster in der Nähe von Neapel starb, war er gerade einmal 26 Jahre alt. Bis dahin hatte er eine steile Karriere als Komponist erlebt, vor allem seine Opern waren beim Publikum beliebt, im Inland wie im Ausland. Seine “Magd als Herrin – La Serva Padrona” etwa war ein riesiger Erfolg an der Pariser Opéra comique. Nach dem frühen Tode Pergolesis war es jedoch das “Stabat Mater”, das seinen Namen unsterblich machte, und das bis heute zu den am häufigsten aufgeführten Werken geistlicher Kompositionen zählt.

Erleben Sie Pergolesis berühmtestes Werk am 22. Februar zur Motette um 18 Uhr in der Leipziger Thomaskirche im Rahmen des 50-jährigen Jubiläums der Schola Cantorum Leipzig. Es singen Mädchenchor und Ensemble, begleitet von Instrumentalisten des Leipziger Barockorchesters sowie den Solisten Anika Paulick (Sopran), Henriette Reinhold (Alt) und Thomasorganist Ullrich Böhme. Das Programmheft, das gleichzeitig als Eintrittskarte dient, kostet 2,- €.

Girls and female choir of the city of Leipzig

The Schola Cantorum Leipzig's girls and female choir has 80 singers between the ages of 12 and over 30. The choir belongs to Germany's best and is internationally renowned, not least of all due to the high level of musical quality demanded, its rigorous youth development programs, many concert tours abroad as well as a variety of awards won in acclaimed competitions. The choir is especially well versed in the presentation of renaissance period equal voices, a-cappella compositions as well as contemporary pieces. It also regularly works together with German orchestras on choral symphonic works. The choir's vast repertoire includes not only the German romantic works of composers such as Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms or Rheinberger, but the ensemble has also made important explorations into French music from the turn of the century. One important key component of the choir's work is the interpretation of contemporary music.

The girls and female choir has been a part of presentations of great oratory works such as Bach's "Passion of St. Mathew", Mendelssohn's "Paulus" and Orff's "Carmina Burana" and has given concerts in Leipzig's most important churches and concert halls. In 1999, the ensemble arranged the official ceremony for the Federal Republic of Germany's 50th birthday in Berlin's Reichstag and 2015 saw the choir sing for Chancellor Angela Merkel as part of the 80th German Welfare Day. The quality of the choirs is attested to by their successful participation in numerous national and international competitions as well as manifold radio, television and CD recordings.
