Pergolesi was an absolute genius who died young. To exploit his fame, 18th-century copyists claimed he had composed Magnificat, which in reality had been written by Francesco Durante. Several years later Jannacconi would rework Pergolesi’s famed Stabat Mater for a more restrained and sober version. This program presents three scores that might well be considered father, son and nephew.

Francesco Durante Magnificat in si bemolle maggiore per soli, coro, archi e continuo Giuseppe Jannacconi Lo Stabat Mater del Pergolesi ridotto a 4 per soli, coro e continuo Giovanni Battista Pergolesi Messa in re maggiore per soli, coro e orchestra
Il concerto è preceduto da una breve introduzione di Stefano Catucci
