Description: Son of Giovanni Maria, this Bononcini made his name in Vienna. His grand setting of the Stabat Mater is distinguished by a restrained pathos with slowly-modulating grand choruses of great tension and arias which suspend time with contemplation of a particular aspect of Christ’s agony on the Cross. No texts. Vocal soloists, Camerata Ligure; Estévan Velardi. Original 1989 Bongiovanni release.
