Rossini ‘Stabat Mater’

Programme

ROSSINI Stabat Mater

About This Concert

The Hanover Band, one of the UK’s most distinguished period instrument orchestras, with its fine chorus and soloists, reflect at Passiontide with Rossini’s Stabat Mater which ”transported the audience” at its first performance in Paris in 1841. It is an unashamedly theatrical work and is rarely performed with original forces.

The second half of tonight's #Messiah from @TheHanoverBand was even more lively than the first - the metaphorical sheep were galloping around the meadow. The Hallelujah Chorus was particularly rousing and Worthy is the lamb/Amen was an absolute belter! Great stuff.

Hallelujah! #THB_MessiahTourUk

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies & arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
