Private concert Stabat Mater by Pergolesi moves listeners

Rehearsal Stabat Mater - Accademia Amsterdam in UtrechtIn a cold church, the "Grote Kerk" at Dordrecht, Accademia Amsterdam performed the famous Stabat Mater by Pergolesi. Soloists were Sytse Buwalda (countertenor) and Marjon Strijk (soprano). Before this famous master piece, the Bach-organ, situated in the Maria Chapel of the church, sounded in full glory in an organ concerto by Handel. The organist of the church, Cor Ardesch, played this impressive instrument.

But the cold didn't demoralise the attentive listeners, all guests of Hannick Music Travels, who joined a musical cruise on the rivers of the Netherlands. We heard only enthusiastic comments on the performance, which was lively and with integrity. After a long period of absence on stage, due to the Covid-restrictions, we were so happy to perform in public again! This was noted by the public, and added to the atmosphere and the expressiveness of the performance. This moved the audience to tears.
