FORGOTTEN GEMS: STABAT MATER AND CHAMBER WORKS FOR STRINGS

Luigi Rodolfo Boccherini (1743-1805)
with Sarasa
Dominique Labelle, soprano
Elizabeth Blumenstock and Christina Day Martinson, violins
Jenny Stirling, viola
Phoebe Carrai and Timothy Merton, violoncellos

• Stabat mater, G. 532a (Prima versione, 1781)
• String Quartet in G major, Opus 52 No. 3, G. 234  (1795)  
• String Quintet in F minor, Opus 42, No. 1, G. 348 (1789)  

Luigi Boccherini famously championed his instrument, the violoncello, in his lifetime, composing over 120 cello quintets alone. Sarasa has had the fantastic opportunity to record one of his most moving and intimate works, his Stabat mater for soprano and cello quintet with the magnificent soprano, Dominique Labelle.


J.S. Bach Cantatas

Featuring baritone Sanford Sylvan, soprano Dominique Labelle, the Sarasa Ensemble performs three cantatas for oboe and strings by J S Bach: BWV 202 Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten, BWV 82 Ich habe genug, and BWV 32 Liebster Jesu, mein Verlangen.
