Presentation

Pergolesi’s short life unfolded in the noisy and populous city of Naples. 18th century travellers noted the dense crowd, the noise of traffic; this effervescence reached its heights during the processions for the celebration of the Virgin of the Seven Sorrows. One week before Holy Week, all the city turned to the streets in a quasi-theatrical show of piety. The religious congregations, who organised these extravagant events, had them followed by the Stabat Mater: the story of Mary’s sorrows was sometimes told with a written score, sometimes improvised in polyphony on a known tune, transmitted orally.

A few months before his death at 26, Pergolesi received a commission for a new Stabat Mater to replace the previous one composed by Scarlatti. Severely ill, he expressed the sufferings of the Virgin by combining the language of passions found in operas and the echoes of the traditional songs that would be sung alongside his composition. This fascinating mix is recreated by Le Poème Harmonique, associating the musician’s genius to the oral traditions around him. A new experience, whose recording and concerts have been rewarded by continuous success for more than fifteen years.
