Moving from anguish to exultation, the unparalleled period-instrument Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and its Choir present a stirring program of Baroque masterworks. Featuring radiant soloists, including “ravishing” countertenor Iestyn Davies (Guardian, U.K.), this concert begins with Pergolesi’s exquisite Stabat Mater, a profoundly moving portrait of a mother’s agony resolving in melodic grace. The second half emerges from the depths with Vivaldi’s joyful Gloria, an exuberant hymn of praise.


The Program

Pergolesi: Stabat Mater

Vivaldi: Gloria in D major



This concert is also part of Great Performers.

“A performance of slow-burning, propulsive energy.”
– Guardian (U.K.)
“Iestyn Davies sings with rapturous virtuosity and uncanny beauty.”
– Independent (U.K.)
