Karol Szymanowski: Stabat Mater

Opgenomen: AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert, vrijdag 23 september 2016, in TivoliVredenburg te Utrecht.


The Stabat Mater is a 13th-century Catholic hymn to Mary, which portrays her suffering as Jesus Christ's mother during his crucifixion. Its author may be either the Franciscan friar Jacopone da Todi or Pope Innocent III. The title comes from its first line, Stabat Mater Dolorosa, which means "the sorrowful mother stood"

Karol Szymanowski's Stabat Mater op.53 was composed in 1925–1926 for soprano, alto and baritone soloists, SATB choir, and orchestra. The work is divided into six movements and uses Jozef Janowski's (1865–1935) Polish translation of the Marian hymn, Stabat Mater.

Szymanowski's first composition on a liturgical text, Stabat Mater was written during his late Nationalist period of 1922–1937, characterized by his use of Polish melodies and rhythms. Following a trip to Zakopane in 1922, Szymanowski wrote of Polish folk music: "[it] is enlivening by its proximity to Nature, by its force, by its directness of feeling, by its undisturbed racial purity." Szymanowski's pairing of Polish musical elements with a liturgical text in Stabat Mater is unique, and a clear reflection of his Nationalist convictions as a composer.
