    Choral Workshops for 2018 in Italy & Hungary

    International Oratorio Choir

    Choral Workshop 17-21 October 2018 in Italy

    Gioacchino Rossini - Stabat Mater

    Who is the International Oratorio Choir?
    International Oratorio Choir (artistic director Peter Laskowski) is a great international choir participating in music projects, with which you may again perform the oratorios you know in an international lineup.

    Who can take part in the project?
    Groups of at least 10 persons.

    What are the terms and conditions for singers?
    - own choral scores (published by Kalmus Music) of Stabat Mater (G. Rossini)
    - some rough knowledge of the piece (e.g. having worked through it yourself or indeed having performed it on a previous occasion)
    - commitment to attend all the rehearsals throughout the project phase

    Which piece will be worked on together?
    Gioacchino Rossini’s Stabat Mater is the central piece of church music written by this Italian opera composer. It is based on a mediaeval poem called Stabat Mater Dolorosa. Following Italian traditions of church music, Rossini divided the mediaeval sequence in Stabat Mater into clearly separated solo and ensemble movements. The care with which he undertook this task is reflected in the fact that he used no material from earlier works whatsoever. Stabat Mater contains both operatic elements and features of church music: lively melodic patterns and dynamic rhythms can be found alongside contrapuntal sections composed in the old style.

    BUDAPEST – a city with one of the best locations in the world
    No visitor of the Hungarian capital can resist its beauty. The city enchants, impresses, and fascinates at the same time. The Danube divides the city into the hilly Buda and the flat Pest. The most interesting attractions of Budapest are the Fishermen's Bastion, the Mathias Church, the Royal Castle, the Citadel, and the Parliament building. It is here, “by the beautiful blue Danube,” that the Budapest Music Festival takes place.
