Music of Luigi Boccherini, including his sublime Stabat Mater

Heralded for their “informed and impassioned music making” (Music & Vision), Boston-based Sarasa has presented concerts throughout the United States and made international appearances in Ireland, Cuba, and India since 1999. For their return to the BEMF concert stage, Sarasa’s ensemble of five virtuoso string players offers a program of elegant chamber music by Italian composer Luigi Boccherini, including the Quintet in C minor, Op. 18, No. 1, the Quartet in G major, Op. 52, No. 3; and the highlight of the evening, Boccherini's sublime Stabat Mater featuring celebrated soprano Dominique Labelle.

Elizabeth Blumenstock & Christina Day Martinson, violin; Jenny Stirling, viola; Phoebe Carrai & Timothy Merton, violoncello
