Thursday, 21 September 2023, 7.30pm

As part of the University Concert Hall's 30th Anniversary celebrations, Irish Chamber Orchestra & UCH are proud to present "STABAT MATER."

Irish Chamber Orchestra Christian Curnyn Conductor

Sharon Carty Mezzo Soprano Anna Devin Soprano


Van Wassenaer - Concerto Armonici No.5 in f minor

Respighi – Ancient Airs and Dances Suite No. 3

Puccini Chrysanthemums


Pergolesi - Stabat Mater

The Concerto by Van Wassenaer, originally attributed to Pergolesi, brims with ground-breaking harmony and melody. It’s the perfect companion to Pergolesi’s symbolic Stabat Mater sung by Sharon Carty and Ann Devin. This beautiful setting of the 13th-century hymn to Mary, at the foot of the crossis a deeply personal meditation, written by the 26-year-old dying Pergolesi. It takes us to the very heart of human passion. Respighi’s captivating and expressive Ancient Airs and Dances No. 3 is a shining example of how brilliantly he brings a modern twist to ancient dance melodies. Puccini‘s elegiac Chrysanthemums, adds colour and warmth in this beautifully poignant movement from Puccini‘s opera Manon Lescaut.

Presented by: Irish Chamber Orchestra and University Concert Hall
