Pergolesi Stabat Mater


Venue: Leiria · Castle of Leiria · Pena Church

João Barradas, Bárbara Barradas and Cátia Moreso

Accordion and Voices Trio
Pergolesi Stabat Mater

A unique version of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, with João Barradas, one of the most respected and recognised accordionists in Europe today, and two award-winning lyric singers, Bárbara Barradas and Cátia Moreso.

The twelve movements of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's Stabat Mater will be the ideal conjuncture and base of departure for the congregation of different musical practices to the accordion of João Barradas.
Interspersed with works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti, the accordionist will also improvise some cadences using the polyphony characteristic of the Baroque as a starting point for the narrative of this concert.
An invitation from Cistermúsica to extend themselves in the genial work of Pergolesi, associating common practices separated by different composers, instrumentation and time line.
A transcription for solo accordion and two soloist voices written by himself and associating it with the tonality of the singers Bárbara Barradas and Cátia Moreso.

João Barradas, accordion
Bárbara Barradas, soprano
Cátia Moreso, mezzo-soprano
