The San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra presents - "Spirit" - San Francisco
In this special program, the Orchestra will perform Vivaldi's Stabat Mater, with contralto singer, Twila Ehmcke. Stabat Mater is the musical setting for a medieval poem on the thoughts of Mary as she watched her son Jesus dying on the cross. It's a very moving work with words and music that express an array of emotions through distress, profound love, and resignation. In some ways similar to another Baroque piece, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater (performed by SFMO during Easter of 2010 and 2011), Vivaldi's version is shorter and requires only an alto. We pair this piece with Bach's Kunst der Fuge, the uninstrumented and incomplete work from the final decade of Bach's life. The contrapuntal lines lend themselves to the precise articulation of mandolins. We round out the program with the romantic, sweeping lines of Martucci's Nocturne and the elegance of Schubert's "Menuetto" from Symphony No. 5.
