Poulenc: Stabat Mater; Les Biches / Deneve, Stuttgart Radio Symphony
Stéphane Dénève, the new principal conductor of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony of SWR makes his debut recording with a thoughtful program of Poulenc. The charmingly frivolous Les Biches, a ballet with chorus, is balanced by the hauntingly passionate Stabat Mater, a medieval hymn meditating on the suffering of Mary during the crucifixion.
