A real theatrical headliner in his day, Gioachino Rossini nevertheless left the theater at the height of his career and retired into voluntary exile in Paris, where he continued to compose far from the public eye. His writing a Stabat Mater resulted from his friendship during those Paris years with banker Alejandro Aguado, who in 1831 invited Rossini to accompany him to Spain, where the composer was continually subjected to requests for music.

The most pressing of those was made by a prelate very close to the king, Padre Manuel Fernandez Varela, who persuaded Rossini to set to music the sequence by Jacopone da Todi, which had an illustrious precedent in the Pergolesi version. The agreement they made was that the composition would remain private and unpublished. Back in Paris, Rossini began working on it, but due to worsening ill health, he only managed to complete part of the work and asked his friend Giovanni Tadolini to finish it.

Following the death of Padre Varela in 1841, the score was purchased by a French publisher - Aulagnier - who obviously could not pass up such an appetizing opportunity. Rossini could not oppose it, but the circumstances forced him to compose the missing parts in order to prevent the incomplete version of his Stabat Mater from circulating.

On the podium will be Nicola Luisotti, one of the most respected Italian conductors abroad, who will also conduct one of the last Mozart symphonies - the one best known by the name of the city that heard its first performance in January, 1787 - the city of Prague.
