Schubert’s F-minor “Stabat Mater” was completed on 22 February 1816, a significant milestone in the composer’s maturation. In the period of 1815-1816, a time of serious introspection for Schubert, his songs first confronted death as subject matter. The “true” Schubert – with his mastery of orchestral colour and great gift for melody – is much apparent. A work of striking contrasts, the “Stabat Mater” begins with a portentously slow orchestral and choral movement that sets an appropriately tragic tone for the expected subject matter. Thereafter, every subsequent movement holds a musical or textural surprise and the generally upbeat movements towards the end portray a collective optimism that would seem to be at odds with their serious subject.
Mozart’s masterful “Requiem” is a favourite choral work and one of the most frequently performed treasures from the classical repertoire. A young man nearing his own death and knowing it wrote this Requiem. While dark in parts and bursting with fury, it is energetic and ultimately uplifting – and undoubtedly Mozart’s most powerful music. From its opening bars, the emotions range from pity and anguish, and the terror of the grave, to the peace of perfect consolation. It has huge energy with tremendous climaxes, expressing unresolved guilt and the injustice of dying young. This “Requiem” is the sublime beauty that is Mozart at his best.
