    Default Haydn - Stabat Mater - preferred recordings?

    Hello all,

    been drawn to this piece - which records do you prefer? I've been thinking of Harnoncourt's or Pinnock's versions, are there other ones you'd recommend?

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    HBC.

    This is not a fair question. Hard to pick either. Is it all right to recommend them both on equal footing?

    From the samples, Harnoncourt's seems to be the slightly 'lighter' but more nuanced version. The soloists seem great as well. Maybe I'll go with Harnoncourt, as his Harmoniemesse is excellent .

    Me too. Haven't heard this yet. Am pre-occupied with 4 performances of "The Creation" and the late masses too.
    Hope to hear it soon.

    I really like the Stabat mater dolorosa, it reminds me of the Seven Last Words when the fortes come in during the introduction. Looking forward to hearing Harnoncourt's disc .

    Never heard this piece. It's now on my bucket list.

    No one does Haydn better than Harnoncourt IMO, except for The Creation, IMO. His reading is too slow for me. I prefer Jacobs.

    I'm watching "In Search of Hadyn" on Prime right now. For the Stabat Mater I like Harnoncourt's best.
