The English Concert
Bernard Labadie (conductor)
Bernard Labadie and The English Concert visit Sage Gateshead for an exploration of one of the most moving and iconic sacred texts ever written. 'The Stabat Mater', attributed to Jacapone da Toni, portrays the mother of Christ as she stands at the foot of the cross which bears her crucified son. Vivaldi responded to the often unbearably moving words with sombre brilliance, and Pergolesi with music of acute intimacy and emotional directness which never fails to move.
