The Stuttgart Oratorio Choir performed Antonín Dvořák’s “Stabat Mater” for the second time after 12 years last Palm Sunday.
Enrico Trummer succeeded in leading all participants to a brilliant musical performance this evening. An excellently disposed choir was able to sing and play this ingenious composition with its glorious moments and incomparable emotionality directly into the soul of our audience through a variety of creative details, sometimes in alternation, but also together with a fantastic quartet of soloists and a highly professional orchestra. Everything was to the point… Rarely have the reactions of the audience been more intense during and after the concert: one could even discover occasional tears of emotion. The jubilant final applause with a “standing ovation” filled all participants of this concert evening with special, very moving feelings.
