Format: Audio CD
This work is a joy from start to end, but do not expect to experience any serious epiphany of a religious nature along the way. Apart from the opening dolorosa, it's pure operatic vocal display and lots of catchy tunes to boot: it's as if Rossini has done his duty and is now off on another bel canto romp up Calvary way. This performance is good - not outstanding - and the Philharmonia is marshalled efficiently by the great Giulini. However, for a more unbridled approach (which is what this essentially sunny setting needs) go for Kertesz and Pavarotti on Decca. It's all a hoot anyway - but wonderfully melodic and hummable.

You can always trust Giulini - he always delivers recordings under the heading "Perfect". Also this one.
Here he also has an array of the best of the best to make music with.
The Philharmonia is the perfect tool for every intention of Maestro Guiliani, the are able of a full sound also in the ppp parts - both orchestra and choir. The choir shows this especially in Quando corpus where the softest parts are still all perfection and richness in sound.
The soloists are exceptionally well balanced in addtion to be superb individually. In the duetto Quis est homo Ricciarelli and Valentini-Terrani are perfectly coloured together. Raimondo has the warm and profound voice that makes him perfect - just listen to his first phrases in Pro peccatis. Gonzales has shown that he is a very interesting Rossini tenor, he has no problem whatsoever with the high notes in Cujus animam. And his voice is clearer here that in many of his other recordings.

If you want to hear more of these singers together - listen to Il viaggio (Rossini), conducted by Abbado.

sublime music beautifully sung 31 Jan. 2008
By Bo Biffa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This wonderfully moving account of Rossini's magnificent Stabat Mater features the lovely Katia Ricciarelli, Ruggero Raimondi, Delmacio Gonzalez with Carlo Giulini conducting. The cast is all that one could wish for and is nothing short of perfection. Everyone, including the chorus, sings with glowing conviction. Katia's voice sounds much more powerful here (due to close miking?) but is also sweet and gentle when called for. I simply cannot say enough about how happy I am that this has been re-issued once again. I had the original cd and have always enjoyed it. Rossini lovers, you are in for a real treat; don't miss this version. It is simply the best available. Brava Katia.

Sheer masterpiece! 31 Oct. 2010
By Dimitri Mihalas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Stabat Mater is one of the most profound of all Catholic liturgical
compositions. One might at first be surprised that Rossini, one of the
greatest of all opera composers would address such a subject. But in my
opinion, his Stabat Mater far surpasses all others ever written. Up to
the time of Rossini, the most dramatic, and musically richest version
of the Stabat Mater was the remarkable composition by Pergolesi.

But Rossini goes far beyond tradition, and introduces his mastery of the
emotional possibilities of operatic singing. In this composition, the
point at which Mary sings her grief, standing at the foot of Christ's
crucifix, one hears REAL grief. I find it almost impossible to hear that
passage without coming to the verge (or sometimes beyond the verge) of
tears. This is NOT music for the casual listener, or the faint of heart;
it is overpowering, and leaves one transfixed. Had Rossini written no
other composition, this one alone would have made him immortal.

The orchestra, soloists, and chorus are utterly superb. I cannot help but
think that had Rossini heard this performance, he himself would have felt
overpowered. In short, this is Rossini at his deepest, and very best. In
every respect it is magnificent.

Excellent performance of a true classic 20 Dec. 2006
By D. R. Schryer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Rossini is famous as a composer of operas, but he was still in his 30s when he composed his last opera, William Tell. After his retirement as an opera composer Rossini's output of music slowed down considerably but, fortunately, it did not stop entirely. Most of Rossini's post-opera compositions, though often delightful, are light in nature. But Stabat Mater, probably his last major composition, is a masterpiece. This recording by Carlo Maria Giulini, one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, is particularly outstanding. If you like the music of Rossini but are not familiar with his Stabat Mater please acquire this outstanding CD.

Rossini: Stabat Mater 7 Dec. 2011
By marko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After purchasing this CD and hearing it for the first time, I immediately enjoyed this work. I think Carlo Guilini does a top-rate job of interpreting Rossini's music, bringing its passion, seriousness, and depth to light. This piece does not stand above Mozart's Requiem, Verdi's Requiem, or Haydn's Creation, but it is beautiful nonetheless, and any classical music afficionado, with a bent for sacred church music or oratorios, should possess.

Yes, this solemn reading STILL stays on top of the field! 7 Oct. 2011
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have previously heard two newer and probably even more stellar cast of this work's recordings - the Chung/Bartoli/Gimenez/Orgonosova, and the more recent Pappano/Netrebko/Didonato/Brownlee.
Giulini's is by far the deepest of the three in terms of spirituality. His tempi are the choicest among the three.
As for the singing, I greatly admire Orgonosava (for her range and purity of tone), and Gimenez (for his lyricism). But when I heard Giulini's, I could not but admit that Ricciarelli, even if she does not have all the high notes, sounds even more affecting and moving than Orgonosova in her middle range, and Valentini Terrani simply blew Cecilia Bartoli out with her full, round and spherical mezzo-soprano.
As for the tenor, Dalmacio Gonzalez is hardly a big name, but his voice has the right squillo for this work that even Gimenez lacks, even though he has slight problem with the slower Cuius Animam.
As for Pappano's version, I find that surprisingly, Netrebko lacks the range in the same sense as Ricciarelli, but she does not have Ricciarelli (nor Orgonosova)'s depth of emotions. Didonato is again no match for Valentini Terrani, alas. Brownlee is a good match for Gimenez's sweetness and lyricism, though, but he mainly excels in ensembles, alas.
So Giulini's Stabat Mater by Rossini is an old vintage, with a balanced group of soloists and his deeper spiritual interpretation.
It is a shame that for the tenor parts, he was not able to use Francisco Araiza, who really is peerless in this work's tenor numbers.
