Pergolesi’s stirring Stabat Mater recognisably served as starting point for Auerbach’s composition for violin, alt violin and chamber orchestra. In this purely instrumental Sogno di Stabat Mater, Auerbach forges a connection between musical elements that span three centuries.

This concert is part of the Lera Auerbach Festival.

What appeals to me in Auerbach's music is her reflection on loneliness - the aloneness of man. […] Her music evokes an inner search for peace and balance in me as a listener and performer.

Emlyn Stam, artistic director New European Ensemble

Dreammusik puts the listener in a dream-like state. “It is dark, gloomy and very beautiful,” said the cellist Ani Aznavoorian to whom Auerbach dedicated it. The Australian/Dutch composer Kate Moore produces a repetitive and powerful work, based on minimal means. Pergolesi's touching version of Stabat Mater forms the recognizable starting point for Auerbach's composition for violin, viola and chamber orchestra. This purely instrumental Sogno di Stabat Mater contains musical elements that span three centuries.
