Rossini Stabat Mater


26 February 9:58am
26 April 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre

Rossini’s masterpiece Stabat Mater is a testament to the composer’s genius. This beautiful work conveys profound grief and hope through its exquisite melodies and lush harmonies, its connection to the bel canto period elevating it above traditional liturgical music. Working with an ensemble of four of Australia’s leading soloists, Richard Mills conducts the Queensland Conservatorium Orchestra and a chorus of sixty vocal students.

This hour-long performance is divided into twelve movements, each brimming with emotional intensity. From the hauntingly beautiful “Stabat Mater dolorosa”, with its ethereal choral harmonies, to the fiery “Cujus animam gementem”, the work weaves a rich tapestry of sound that reflects the text’s profound sorrow and longing.
