Pergolesi’s celebrated Stabat Mater was composed in 1736 in the final weeks of the composer’s life and became the most printed single work of the 18th century. From its famous plaintive introduction, thrilling central fugato and exciting final duet, Susan Piggott, soprano, is joined by Philip Viveash-Brainch, countertenor, accompanied by a period strings and continuo. The concert will include duets and baroque instrumental works performed by some of the UK’s leading young historical performers from the Royal Academy of Music.
