Gianandrea Noseda by Scott Suchman
Liszt vividly depicts episodes from Dante’s Inferno and Purgatory, while Rossini paints a portrait of a mother’s grief. The intense drama of Dante’s verse comes to life in Liszt’s spectacularly orchestrated descriptions of hell’s terrors and ethereal women’s choir intoning the Magnificat in the ascent to Purgatory. A masterpiece of 19th-century sacred music, Rossini’s setting of the Stabat Mater, the Virgin Mary’s lament at the cross of Jesus, moves with superb vocal writing, including the hair-raising “Inflammatus” for soprano and chorus, the tenor’s showpiece “Cujus animam,” and more.
